‘BE Side Lectures with Dorrie Wilson’
The BE Side Lectures, created and presented by Dorrie Wilson, explore the wealth and variety of voices from African diaspora communities and aim to influence how Afro-descendants are perceived in European cultures and cultural institutions. These conferences and round tables are organised as part of the Salon Jeanne Duval, which is named after the Franco-Haitian dancer, actress and muse of Baudelaire’s Fleurs du Mal, and who was painted by Claude Manet in 1862.
Dorrie Wilson is an independent African American researcher, writer and cultural curator whose work focuses on examining structural racism, citizenship and migration in contemporary Europe.
