Annick van Rinsum interviews Babah Tarawally, a public speaker, columnist for the newspaper Trouw, and author of several books in this podcast. Tarawally shares his insights about society, based on the Ubuntu philosophy, which emphasises the interconnectedness of all people.
One of Tarawally’s main points is that we can have more meaningful relationships when we let go of privilege. He argues that black and white thinking, which often leads to polarisation in society, is a sign of being in a depressive state. Rather than seeing polarisation as something evil, Tarawally views it as a sickness that needs to be addressed.
Tarawally discussed these ideas further in the program “Actions for Migrating Perspectives in European Media” on Friday, May 12th at 7.30 p.m. The event took place at Pakhuis de Zwijger, and promises to be an insightful and thought-provoking discussion about how we can create a more connected and inclusive society.
