Decolonising the Mind book series launch – Reparations and Resistance
Today – 6pm – Arts Lecture room 6
“Look beyond your plantation labour camp. There are more plantation labour camps with the same coloniser but different colonised”.
As part of Black History Month we will be hosting the Birmingham launch event of the Decolonising the Mind book series, in conversation with Sandew Hira – author of ’20 Questions and Answers about Reparations for Colonialism’.
The book series is about the legacy of colonialism in knowledge production and the social movements that struggle against this legacy.
Decolonising The Mind is a form of resistance against dominant narratives of scientific colonialism.
Sandew Hira is an independent scholar and activist. He is director of the International Institute for Scientific Research, an institute that promotes research into decolonising the mind. He is a visiting lecturer at the Anton de Kom University of Suriname.
The event is in collaboration with the Islamic Human Rights Commission.
Copies of book ’20 Questions and Answers about Reparations for Colonialism’ will be for sale for £5 on the day.
