Black Protest, Black lives and the University: A Transnational Conversation
Recent protests across the Black diaspora as well as critical challenges to the university as a colonial structure have been underpinned by a philosophical grounding in the discourse and demands of reparations. This conversation between Verene Shepherd (Professor Emeritus and Director of the Centre for Reparation Research, The University of the West Indies) and Asanda Saule Ngoasheng (Affiliate Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa; Research Associate, Centre for Rights and Justice, University of Sussex, UK) will take up questions of reparatory justice in relation to Black protest and the university. Our contributors will draw on their respective leadership in the Reparations Movement spearheaded by the University of the West Indies and the #FeesMustFall, #RhodesMustFall, and #DecolonisingTheCurriculum movements emerging from South Africa. We will explore the challenges, provocations as well as the transformative possibilities of these movements to right historical injustices on both sides of the Atlantic.
