Popakademie TALKS with Malcolm Ohanwe

22. June 2021

On Tuesday, July 06, 2021 at 7:30 p.m., Malcolm Ohanwe will be a guest at Popakademie TALKS. At the new series, program manager Prof. Dr. David-Emil Wickström will speak with guests from the music and culture sectors on current social issues. The topic in the summer semester 2021 is [K]Discrimination and Privilege.

Malcolm Ohanwe (27) is a multimedia journalist for ARD and ZDF. He travels all over the world for his reports: whether to Detroit in the United States, the 20-million metropolis of Lagos in Nigeria, the United Arab Emirates or Sonthofen in Swabia. It's about homophobia in religious communities or violence-glorifying lyrics in Deutschrap, feminism, (everyday) racism, cultural identity or Corona. In 2019 he received the International Music Journalism Award for the best music journalistic work under 30, and was listed by Medium magazine as one of the best journalists* under 30. His podcast "Kanackische Welle" together with Marcel Aburakia received the Smart Hero Award in 2020, among others. He hosts the program "Respekt" for ARD alpha, the format "#trending" for ZDF Auslandsjournal and the podcast "Sack Reis - Was geht dich die Welt an?" for SWR.

Participation in the event is free of charge. Registration is possible here.
