Junot Díaz i samtale med Lotte Folke Kaarsholm om kolonialisme, racisme og migration.

LIVE fra Det Kgl. Bibliotek

Racisme kom for alvor på dagsordenen i 2020 gennem reaktualiseringen af Black Lives Matter-bevælgelsen. Den dominansk-amerikanske forfatter Junót Diaz besøgte i 2017 Den Sorte Diamant for at tale om USA (som alles øjne er rettet mod lige nu), kolonialisme, racisme og migration. Selv finder han det produktivt at forestille sig en verden både uden USA og mænd og uden nogen hvide mennesker! Hør eller genhør Junoy Díaz samtale med journalist Lotte Folke Kaarsholm optaget i Den Sorte Diamant i 2017.
