Black Spectrum

Black Spectrum

Discussion group for black neurodivergent people * Sharing-Circle for Black neurodivergent people *

with / with Tessa (D eutsch / English)


+++ For members of the Black community * +++

Black neurodivergent people are not only often underdiagnosed or diagnosed late, but are also faced with additional hurdles, stereotypes and attributions every day in a white neuronormative majority society. Even in black or neurodiverse safer spaces and communities, it is difficult to feel a full belonging, to arrive or to find community and understanding.

We would like to offer a safer space for free, relaxed exchange, to get to know other black neurodivergent people, to reflect on experiences and to think about hopes, wishes and perspectives.

This is the very first meeting of a new initiative from AfroPolitan Berlin and we are also open to your ideas and suggestions on how this can develop further. If you are fundamentally interested in the discussion group, but cannot on the date, feel free to contact us so that we know whether there would be interest in future meetings.

Language / s: German and / or English; Depending on the preferences of the participants, we can be flexible and multilingual.

If you are generally interested in the sharing circle, but cannot attend on this first date, feel free to still contact us, so that we know whether there would be interest in future meetings.

* Neurodiversity is the spectrum of variations in individual brain functions and behavioral characteristics. Neurodivergent describes people whose neurocognitive brain functions differ from those which society defines as lying within the norm (ie as “neurotypical”) ( e.g. autism, hyperactivity (ADHD), dyspraxia et al.). The meeting does not offer any therapy or diagnosis options, but is a place of exchange.
