Tues, Jan 23 – Hart House Hancock Lecture: “Black and Educated?”
7-9 pm, Great Hall Hart House is pleased to present the 17th Annual Hancock Lecture: Black and Educated? Unveiling The Contradictions and Redesigning The Future delivered by Chizoba Imoka and moderated by Dr. Kofi Hope. In an education system based on Western values and knowledge, Black students go through school feeling alienated and graduate ill-equipped to bring about transformative changes in their communities. Is it not time to restructure the system? Chizoba Imoka disrupts the perceived Black and “Educated” contradiction and advances an alternative vision of education that acknowledges colonial history, is responsive to socio-political concerns and enables a new generation of social justice leaders to make real change. Following her presentation, Chizoba will be joined by a Rhodes Scholar, Doctor of Philosophy in Politics, community activist and youth advocate, Kofi Hope for an onstage discussion. Free for students. Tickets and info here: http://harthouse.ca/events/hancock2018/
