Grasping at the Root: Decolonising Education In Practice
Angela Davis poignantly says: “Radical simply means grasping things at the root.” From Rhodes must fall, to decolonise my curriculum, to student campaigners calling for divestment for social and environmental justice, we see that activists, student officers and academic staff have been spearheading the decolonising education movement here in the UK, making change at a local, national and international level. Join the incredible panellists discussing how we can put decolonisation into practice in order to create a new education system.
