An elegant poem highlighting the varying ways in which Western (and some non-Western) writers make Africa the “other.”
This highlights a delicate balance that we must strike in teaching students. On one hand, we want out students to be engaged in the world, but we want to ensure that their engagement isn’t entirely on their terms….one in which they get to construct themselves as the “savior” towards the “less fortunate.” How do we achieve humble engagement in ourselves and our students….my thought for the day 🙂
A good video for talking about privilege on a global scale.
