About this Talk

The idea of colonialism is a conscious way of falsing one's belief system, structures, and ideas onto another human.

I believe in allowing people to consciously create and understand their own beliefs without negative influences. Decolonising education creates another avenue for real unity.

Session Takeaways

  1. Understanding colonisation and the negative impact it has had in education
  2. recognising the history that created the idea of racism
  3. learning how to connect with others through a decolonised education system
