Black Women in Europe™: Power List 2014 – A List of Our Own©

OXFORDSHIRE, ENGLAND/ The Black Women in Europe™ blog, created in 2006 by Adrianne George, released its 5th Black Women in Europe™: Power List 2014 that pays tribute to 5 women in the categories of Advocacy, Culture, Lifestyle, Politics, and Sports.
This marks the fifth year in a row that the Black Women in Europe™: Power List shines a spotlight on incredible women”, George beams. “I feel proud to be a woman and thankful for the opportunity to share this list”.
In 2010 the Black Women in Europe™ Blog released its first Power List naming 58 women across Europe in 6 categories. The 2014 list is scaled down to five to celebrate the fifth year of the list, the only one of its kind that celebrates the achievement of black women in Europe.
The list, presented in alphabetical order, is intended to acknowledge powerful black women in Europe and to inspire others to reach their full potential. The list does not aim to assess rank but rather to showcase influential women who, in some cases are well known and in others, are up and coming stars.
The 2014 List editor is     Adrianne George. The logo and slide show were designed by Mark Derek McCullough of Cuedos Design.

Affiong goes to Europe shows the adventures of Aunt Affy (Anita Hogan), an extroverted Calabar woman who is on a visit to her younger cousin Udoh in Holland.

In Holland she is confronted with a totally different way of life than she is used to in her village in Akwa Ibom state of Nigeria.

How Affy confronts these culture clashes make for some hilarious and comedic highlights.

'Zwarte piet is een racistische karikatuur van de zwarte mens'

(Danitzah Jacobs)

Mijn bijdrage aan het nationaal dialoog. De reacties hierop zijn al veelzeggend.

" Dat de meerderheid van Nederland voor het behoud van zwarte piet is, deert Jacobs niet. De angst om buitengesloten te worden heeft ze van zich afgeworpen. “Verandering begint altijd met één persoon die moed toont en tegen de status quo ingaat. Het zijn deze eenlingen die ervoor zorgen dat de mensheid zich blijft ontwikkelen. Nelson Mandela, Aletta Jacobs, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Harry Tomas, Tula, Quinsy Gario, Martin Luther King. Als zij hadden gewacht op de meerderheid dan waren we als mensheid niet waar we nu zijn. Er is nog veel te doen!”
