A Course in Black Consciousness: Decolonising the Mind
- 4:00 pm
17 April 2021
Online | £75
Join us for this enlightening and engaging course in which we will not only place Black Consciousness in its historical context but will learn how to deploy its tools in pursuit of our personal and collective growth.
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the ideas of South African revolutionary Steve Biko, who stressed the importance of psychological emancipation to any struggle for equality.
The first course of its kind, it aims to inspire participants to think about concrete ways to solve the problems our increasingly global and interconnected communities face.
A course open to all, through exercises designed to challenge participants to begin to think about ways to decolonise their mindset and the systems and structures around them, we aim to empower participants to live as Biko did, more audaciously, more authentically and most importantly, more consciously.
