The streets of Brussels hold monuments and buildings that have housed colonial institutions and bear the names of leading figures of the Belgian colonial period. Matongé is no exception: from the Union of Colonial Women to the Paul Panda Farnana tribute to Lumumba Square, the streets tell a story of Belgian imperialism and African achievements untold in official narratives.

During the tour, you will discover parts of the history of Belgian colonization in Congo and explore the impact it has had on representation, rights and autonomy of communities of African descent in Belgian and European societies today.
