Swiss Happens: Black Womxn from Elsewhere in Conversation

Three Black womxen from elsewhere who moved to Zürich at different times in conversation about their experiences and realities navigating Zürich, Switzerland and Europe in the bodies they inhabit. One arrived over 40 years ago, another over 20 and the other 10. What has changed? What has remained the same? How has this place changed me? How have I changed this place? What is home? Where is home? Who am I, here, now?
