Pax Christi Wallonie Brussels: Neither black nor white: the forgotten children of colonization

Wed, 04/27/2016

 
Mr. Assumani Budagwa, the author of Blacks, Whites, Metis, Belgium and Métis segregation of the Belgian Congo and Rwanda-Burundi (1908-1960), will speak about the Métis children, who were born during Belgian colonisation, and were considered a threat in the eyes of Belgian colonial authorities.

What were the drastic measures the Belgian authorities took? 
What are the consequences now? 
Why is this issue still sensitive, more than fifty years after the end of colonisation?
