Here’s a brief description: Since 2011 the “traditional” celebration of St. Nicholas in the Netherlands has become increasingly controversial because of the appearance of St. Nicholas’ servants – blackface, thick red lips, black curly hair, and golden earrings. Where did this “tradition” originate? Why don’t many Dutch people see this is a racist stereotype? What does this tell us about racism and multi-cultural societies in Europe?
Hope to see many of you there!!
