“The most powerful weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.” | Steve Bantu Biko
Colonialism is "the the policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically." On this episode, we speak very candidly on a topic that is integral to how we grew up and has greatly influenced who we are.
From "Lizzy's gone" to erasure of identity, we go THERE! Dissecting how it has impacted our lives and questioning if we would be who we are today had we not been raised in colonised Zimbabwe. We also speak on how colonialism bleeds into the black inferiority complex, identity, colourism, having to prove ourselves in white spaces and being the "right kind of black"!
Delve deeper with us and let us know if it's had any effect on you and how you've experienced or witnessed colonialism!
