She will be speaking about the contradictions of becoming ‘educated’ as a Black person. Given that the current education system is grounded in Western values/histories/norms, Black students go through school feeling alienated and graduate ill-equipped to make much needed transformative changes in their communities/society at large.
Drawing from her schooling/advocacy experience and her doctoral research on Nigerian student experiences, she will be advancing a new vision of education that acknowledges colonial history, is responsive to socio-political-economic concerns and develops a new generation of social justice leaders. She will also provide concrete recommendations for change at various levels of society.
It’s past time for the global education system to change towards justice, diversity and inclusion for all.
