Ngoy Ramadhani Ngoma

@ AFRODICTIONARY COORDINATOR

Ngoy Ngoma, coordinator of AfroDiccionario, will show us what this social project, born out of the need of rethinking the Spanish language, is about. It contains several racist, xenophobic and gendered phrases, due to both our cultural heritage and the most current manifestation of racial discrimination.

Therefore, the Afrodiccionario is an initiative aiming at denouncing terms that are found in plenty of media, educational textbooks and social networks.  Their motivation is to provide alternatives for a more respectful and egalitarian use of language with the aim of having a more cohesive society.

Moreover, they look for an intergenerational space for a dialogue among members of the African Spanish community to give visibility to its heterogeneity.
