Collectif Mémoire Coloniale et Lutte contre les Discriminations
FR (16/05) / EN (18/05)
A guided tour addressing the link between the colonial period and the first African migrants settling in the Matongé district.
An African proverb says 'As long as the lions do not have historians, the story of the hunt will always be to the glory of the hunter'. It is in this spirit that the Collectif Mémoire Coloniale et Lutte contre les Discriminations offers its guided tours. The colonization was not the business of only one people and it is therefore important that the narration of this chapter of history is not made by one protagonist. Brussels holds monuments and buildings that have housed colonial institutions. During a guided tour through the city, you will discover parts of the history of Belgian colonization in Congo, often different from the 'official' version. The tour will also be an opportunity to understand how colonization still has a great impact on he way we perceive the Other in our society today, but also how relations between the so-called countries of the North and the South were built.
