Landecker Fellow Evein Rosa Obulor was featured in Rhein-Necker-Zeitung. In the article, she describes her early understanding of feeling different as well as racist encounters. These early experiences, and subsequent activism in Heidelberg, have shaped the work she now engages in.
In her current position, at the office for anti-discrimination in Heidelberg, Evein engages in racism prevention as well as helps those affected by racist encounters. Whilst her job focuses on anti-racism, she also seeks to talk about the opportunities diversity brings. Thus, her work also aims to celebrate diversity by promoting art and culture. One such initiative in Heidelberg includes the Afro Festival.
