Description

Decolonizing the Academy with Birthright Africa

In this presentation, Okunini Ọbádélé Kambon presents his case for the need to decolonize the academy with examples that hit home and to which we can all relate. Why is it that we know so much about our colonial enemies, but so little about ourselves as Afrikans=Black people. If what we do for ourselves depends on what we know of ourselves, how can we expect to do better when we know so little? Okunini Kambon lays bare the cause of our current malaise and offers tangible concrete solutions when the academy has its knee on our collective necks and “we can’t breathe.”
