Zwart en Revolutionair: Het verhaal van Hermina en Otto Huiswoud (scroll down for English) Op 25 november opent de tentoonstelling ‘Zwart en Revolutionair: het verhaal van Hermina en Otto Huiswoud’ in het pand van Vereniging Ons Suriname aan de Zeeburgerdijk in Amsterdam. In The Black Archives ontdekte New Urban Collective het verhaal van twee zwarte revolutionairen: Hermina en Otto Huiswoud. Een verborgen geschiedenis van een avontuurlijke strijd tegen kolonialisme, racisme en economische ongelijkheid. Zwarte emancipatie in Nederland Hun levensloop bracht Hermina en Otto Huiswoud in contact met een internationaal netwerk van antikoloniale denkers, schrijvers en activisten, zoals Anton de Kom, Marcus Garvey, W.E.B. Du Bois en Langston Hughes. Middels unieke archiefstukken en persoonlijke documenten van Hermina en Otto Huiswoud en kunstwerken van kunstenaars Iris Kensmil, Brian Elstak en Raul Balai maakt The Black Archives een verhaal dat lang verborgen is gebleven weer zichtbaar.

Black emancipation in the Netherlands The life of the Huiswoud connected them to an international network of anti-colonial thinkers, writers and activists, such as Anton de Kom, Marcus Garvey, W.E.B. Du Bois and Langston Hughes. The story of the Huiswouds shows that there has been a long tradition of black emancipation and political organizing in the Netherlands. Due, in part, to the involvement of the Huiswouds, Vereniging Ons Suriname became a hub for a political movement striving for the independence of Suriname as well as against racial discrimination and inequality in the Netherlands.
