Talk on Identity

  • Talk

Identity has many facets and seems to be more important today than ever before. Identity gives us security and a sense of belonging.
Are we above all women or men, black or white, discriminated against or part of the dominant society – or in the end just ourselves? What if skin colors, origins and identities are in truth never clear-cut? wrote author Mithu Sanya in her book Identitti. What does identity do, what does it mean for the individual and the collective? Onyeka Igwe and Dela Dabulamanzi discuss their individual perspectives and explain what identity does at its best.
