The CodeSwitch Episode 4: ‘Have you checked your privilege lately?’

The Code Switch is a talk show based on articles appearing in Vanguard magazine and hosted by its founder and editor, Panashe Chigumadzi. The cast discusses a range of issues that speak to the life of young black women who are coming of age in post-apartheid South Africa and find themselves ‘switching’ through a number of culturally diverse environments.

The cast members include Pontsho Pilane, Obenewa Amponsah, Masehletse Lucy Balimba, Sebenzile Nkambule and Nozuko Mapoma.

This episode sees the cast discussing ‘Relativity, privilege and intersectionality’ and asks each cast member to check themselves for the privileges they might enjoy as a result of the intersection of social identities such as class, gender and race. Importantly, they then discuss what to do when you have recognised those privileges and how to become a better ‘ally’ instead of a messiah.
