"Blackness" is too often oversimplified, with hefty consequences. The truth is Blackness is as complex and problematic a term as they come, and needs to be taught by educators with a full respect for its complexity. #BlackEye is launching a new series to investigate just how blackness is being introduced by those tasked with its dissemination here in Japan. Not to be missed! http://www.locoinyokohama.com/2017/07/23/whos-teaching-the-history-and-diversity-of-blackness-in-japan/
