About Gerty Dambury


Gerty Dambury is a Guadeloupean writer, actress, and stage director. She shares her time between Guadeloupe and France, where she currently lives.

She took part to the first Coordination of Black Women created in the 1970’s and remains a reference for black women who still combat racism today. In the cultural field, she founded, with five other women, the collective Décoloniser les Arts in 2015, aiming at a change in the representations and social positions of Blacks, Asians, Maghrebi, and people of different origins born in France.
