Location: Kurt-Schumacher-Haus, Müllerstraße 163, 13353 Berlin-Wedding

Anti-black racism is part of everyday life in many Berlin schools. Children of African origin are discriminated against on a daily basis during their education in Germany. Discriminatory behaviour comes from both teaching staff and fellow pupils. Experiences of discrimination and exclusion deprive children of African origin of the joy of learning, have a negative effect on their educational success and thus have a lasting impact on the lives of Black children.
The SAfE symposium on 8 October 2022 aims to discuss strategies to combat anti-Black racism in Berlin schools. For this reason, the role of parent cooperation in combating anti-Black racism and the potentials in networking African parent organisations will be discussed. The establishment of separate educational institutions for children of African origin, modelled on other bilingual schools, could also help to strengthen the identity of children of African origin.
The SAfE symposium aims to strengthen networking within the Black community and their respective organisations and to promote cooperation with all those involved in anti-discrimination and anti-racism work. The SAfE symposium is aimed at all those interested in the discourse on anti-Black racism and will be discussed with the following speakers:
● Saraya Gomis, State Secretary for Diversity and Anti-Discrimination in Berlin.
● MdB Armand Zorn, SPD
Ms. Anja Treichel, Managing Director of the office "Expansion of the Federal Parents' Network of Migrant Organisations for Education & Participation (bbt3)".
