Category: Racism is Real in Ireland
RACISM IS REAL IN IRELAND is a series of 6 podcasts that examines the effect of racism on African migrants in Ireland. There are six topics for discussion including integration, education, employment, diversity, hate speech/hate crime and multiculturalism. The beauty of each podcast is the African migrants are given the unique platform to share their personal experiences without restriction or fear of reprisals. They examine racism and its devastating effect on their well-being! They represent the visible migrants, the new Irish Africans. Their unique voices are recorded as they express their brush with racism daily. At the end of each podcast, recommendations are made to inspire and encourage economic, social and political growth of the Irish society as they work together with the New Communities.
These podcasts support the on going campaign and petitions to establish the Hate Crime Law in Ireland the only country in Europe without this law.
This podcast is researched and presented by Mary Oyediran with the support of NearCast and the African Centre of Ireland.
