Zwarte Piet and the Vestiges of Dutch Colonialism

0 0 3 months ago
In this episode, I will be discussing a Dutch Christmas tradition and its association with Zwarte Piet, or Black Pete in English. This character is based on anti-Black stereotypes and involves the use of blackface. This episode aims to examine this specific tradition within a larger context of Dutch colonization throughout the Atlantic World and also considers Black experiences in the Netherlands today. Joining me is my Humanity in Action fellow, Valerie Ntinu.
