Tania De Montaigne

Writer & Journalist

My skin color does not say who I am.” In her latest book, Designation: There is no such thing as “Blacks”, Tania de Montaigne goes to war against the capital-lettered-labels that assign people to preconceived groups: Blacks, Women, Jews, Muslims … all of them myths that we create and use to sort the unknown or the unfamiliar into ready-made boxes. But what if we stopped believing we can know a person by the color of their skin, religion or sex? What if we managed, little by little, to progress and realize how often we fall prey to reflexes and habits, in spite of ourselves? Tania de Montaigne invites us to take a long, healthy look at ourselves and others, so that we can better coexist and finally get to really know one another.
