International spaces such as Hong Kong brings the world of ethnicities together and many expats find themselves in platonic and intimate relationships with Peoples of different races. These relationships often teeter when geo-racio-historic ideologies and residue of colonisation surface. In this dinner and discussion at the Brown Table, Black Sistas engage with the concept of Coloniality and begin to unpack its inevitable impact on doing inter-racial dating and other relationships in Hong Kong. We also begin to map some practical and strategic language and behaviours to establish respectful boundaries and the preservation of multi-ethic relationships.
Dr. Nadine Muschette is a career educator and glocal citizen. She has studied and worked in seven nations across four continents.
She is a recent PhD graduate from the Faculty of Education at the University of Hong Kong, where she combined the concept of Coloniality and theory of Capital to examine the lived-experiences and perspectives of her compatriots, Jamaican educators in Japan. Nadine has also served at the Feminine Influence Finishing School a faith-based relationship coaching service for Black and Brown women. Nadine is based in Hong Kong and currently serves as the Head of Spiritual Growth at the ELCHK Lutheran Academy.
It is a fun and family-friendly space to find heartwarming African food and direct connection to the local African community. The center is for everyone, where they can freely express themselves and their ideas.
The Africa Center is a turning point for the African communities within Hong Kong, and for those who wish to learn and integrate with the community not just within the city, but through out the African diaspora.
I value the “African Literature Book Club” as I value Women’s Day and Black History Month because African literature deserves a spotlight.
