Education, Race, History
Sunday 2 July
11:30 – 12:45
With Panashe Chigumadzi, Toni Stuart, and Bwesigye Bwa Mwesigire (via Skype).
Rhodes Must Fall and the student movement have brought issues of education, race and history in South Africa into the international limelight. But these events represent a culmination of ideas and debates that have a long backstory, in activism, in approaches to teaching and learning, and in the exploration of ideas by artists and writers.
In this discussion, we look at the creative work has fed into, and responded to these conversations. What does transformation mean in the systems that govern, as well as the relationships we have with others, and with ourselves? Join us for this discussion, with readings and contributions in poetry and prose by the invited writers.
