When we talk about the history of a country or a city, whose history are we talking about? After Black Lives Matter, dominant narratives have become publicly contested; contested to include stories which were left forgotten. But if we talk about a shared history, it has to go beyond only including multiple perspectives and voices of the other. Groups that suffered from exclusion and worse, demand apologies. So, how can we revisit the past, not in a sporadic but in a productive way, which paves the path towards making reparations?
