We investigate the role of history in the manipulation of consciousness. We understand the manipulation of history as a leading course to most socioeconomic, psycho-cultural and self-hate situations we find ourselves in as a collective, including all the behaviours that we attest that frustrate us.
We enquire about Structural Racism as a means to suppress and perpetuate the oppressive conditions that people of African descent, especially youth, find themselves in most aspects of their lives when dealing with social institutions.
The programme largely focuses on combating self-hate through imparting pride in African history and heritage. Additionally we explore culture and contributions of Africans in the history of the current civilisation. We further explore matters of identity, belonging and need for a meaningful life for our youth.
We will also focus on how identity is related to an individual’s understanding of themselves as a psychological entity and much more.
