During the fall of 2012 Sweden has been engaged in an intense debate about racism in children’s film, literature and comics.
In November, in connection to “The 15 Project”, Ylva Habel, one of the participants in this debate, asked Shantrelle P. Lewis, Art Curator and Barakat B. Ghebrehawariat, Project leader to have a short dialogue with her regarding the recent debates around representations of blackface in Swedish popular culture (for instance "Little Pink and the Motley Crew" and Tintin). She also talked to Dubelyoo Wright, Illustrator, Designer and Painter Fahamu Pecou.
