The Future of Black Youth on a Global Stage

Black History Month is an annual observance that originated in the United States and received official recognition from the Canadian government in 1995. Some argue the month of February silos the work and recognition of the Black community and others say it’s a spotlight that needs to focus even more on young Black voices from around the world. Where do the Nordics position themselves in this conversation? Is it time to look at Black futures in a global, borderless context, or is “place” the critical ingredient to equality?
