Visual: How to Unlearn History
From awkward school encounters to offensive questions, our founder and editor Ella Achola often finds herself at the intersections of identity, and shared her big idea for bringing ourselves into the stories we tell at the last TEDxCoventGardenWomen conference at the Museum of London on 30 May 2015.
About the speaker:
Born in Berlin, Ella identifies as Afro-German, discovering a history she only recently stumbled upon. She writes and reviews events in her spare time and edits for AIAWC. Ella founded the Collective as an opportunity to engage with her Afro-German identity and extend the conversation about the black diaspora in Europe beyond the UK. Find her tweeting @ella_achola!
