GURLZ WITH CURLZ e.V.
»MAY I TOUCH YOUR HAIR?«
Where are you from? Can you get a sunburn?
I'm sure you dance very well and can sing.
From a white perspective, these questions and statements usually appear very innocently. Unfortunately they do not show empathy, knowledge, cosmopolitanism and tolerance. Because for POC and BIPOC these confrontations are like drip torture. Every day. Over and over again.
This everyday, multifaceted and inconspicuous form of racism has an unexpectedly intense and gruelling effect. And that's what Linda Nübling, founder and heart of GURLZ WITH CURLZ e.V., feels, too. With her association she wants to show that the black community is more than just racism without ignoring it.
GWC wants to enlighten, sensitize, illuminate misunderstandings and disparities. We create spaces for encounters and use art to make visible what is apparently invisible. In this way understanding is created through dialogue.
