How can we build a world where Black lives really matter?

This animated project was created in collaboration with openDemocracy & The Democracy Collaborative. It discusses the current unequal and divisive system of racial capitalism and explores the positive change that can happen under a more democratic economy, which prioritises repair and healing.

Directed and Animated by Ermina Takenova
Narrated by an American sociologist Tricia Rose
Inspired by Rev. Ronnie Galvin and Dr. Ron Daniel’s piece ‘Repaying the debt owed to Black people requires a democratic and reparative economy’
