skin whitening

By Naila Missous, Despite the unprecedented freedoms that decolonisation has brought many Black and non-white people – especially in specific regions of Africa and Asia– freedom and its fulfilment along with contested meanings remain a preoccupation within Black and Asian cultural discourses and practices.

lecture

 By Naila Missous “Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing in the hope that…” is the usual beginning to the mission that is unearthing any form of work experience. Sat in the one space you could find in the library, you think “I’m skint, summer seems but a distant memory and I still have these […]
