Araba Evelyn Johnston-Arthur is a cofounder of Pamoja. Movement of the Young African Diaspora in Austria and the Research Group of Black Austrian History. She was engaged as community and cultural worker and “racism critical” activist in Vienna. In 1999 she was an active part of the Network of African Communities, which’s focus lay in the mobilization of community protests against institutionalized racism and police violence in Vienna. Her transdisciplinary work engages with intersectionaly resistant diasporan politics and the “decolonizing art of mattering (embodied) memories.“ She currently teaches at Howard University in Washington DC.
