During my daily commute to work I pass the World Trade Centre in the business district of Amsterdam every morning. Somewhere during 2011, I had this pivotal moment, where I looked around me and realised that I was the only black man in a suit standing on the platform. I know that there are other men like me, black men in a leadership positions, I see them in other parts of town. However I hardly see them in the business district.
The initiative to set up ‘The other Calendar’ came from this personal experience. The calendar is meant to generate more visibility and positivity around black women and men in professional environments. The calendar portrays black role models from the Netherlands in the spirit of famous – and less famous -historical figures from Africa. In these way we get to know both our brothers and sisters, as well as our shared history.
