Living with rage - giving space to Black anger

Living with rage - giving space to Black anger

"Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge. They are chaotic, sometimes painful, sometimes contradictory, but they come from deep within us. And we must key into those feelings... This is how new visions begin." - Audre Lorde

Permission to show certain emotions remains a privilege in our culture. Anger is a rational response to trespass and violation, and as Black people we have been trained to hide our anger in order to be heard. But society is suddenly beginning to acknowledge the cause for that anger, as we have grown weary of concealing it.

This workshop is designed for Black people to come together with non-Black people to create understanding and acceptance of anger as a natural and appropriate response to injustice.

Using the fishbowl discussion technique — a circle-based discussion format in which one group engages in a conversation or exchange and another group observes and listens — Black folks will have the chance to exchange their stories and experiences on an uninterrupted platform. Non-Black folks will have the chance to listen and empathize in order to normalize anger and give it a healthy space in conversations.

🗣 This circle will be facilitated by Jarral Boyd and held English.

Open to everyone with a collaborative, open and respectful mindset. Centering Black voices.

Space is limited. Register to attend:


Non-Black people attending are asked to pay with a sliding scale pricing based on your means.

Sliding scale:
- Reduced price: 10€
- Standard price: 15€
- Solidarity price: 20€

*No one denied for lack of funds*


Jarral Boyd is a linguist and educator who hails from one of the most segregated cities in the United States. Having a black father and indigenous mother, she never had the advantage of ignoring the impact of systematic racism, but it wasn't until she finally decided to take up roller derby that she became passionate about education and communication on the subjects of white feminism/fragility, implicit bias, and the responsibilities of so-called allyship.

In her 13th year here in Berlin, she now captains her team and heads her roller derby league's Inclusion Committee, as well as offering workshops on these subjects to the public.

MUTUAL RESPECT at aequa gatherings

We host and invite people from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Each of us is made up of a collection of intersecting privileges and oppressions. The languages spoken and understood are many and varied.

We strive to celebrate these differences and encourage an open, respectful and compassionate mindset. We try to avoid making assumptions about others, or projecting our own opinions as the only valid truth. We assume positive intent while addressing any hurt that happens as a result of these exchanges.

We do NOT tolerate racism, cis*sexism, ableism, ageism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia or other hateful opinions or behaviors.

If you or anyone around you expresses or experiences discomfort, please get in touch.
