New Perspectives On African Centred Education In Canada from the Author: George Jerry Sefa Dei. New Perspectives on African-Centred Education in Canada is the first study of African-centred schooling in the Canadian context. Starting with an in-depth look at the creation of an Africentric public school within the Toronto District School Board, it tells the story of the movement behind that school's creation and lays bare a rich history of activism, organization, and resistance on the part of numerous African Canadian communities and their allies. The book presents a critical overview of the issues facing racialized students and offers a unique vision of African-centred education as a strategy for student engagement and social transformation. The authors, well known public commentators on African-centred education in Canada, offer a comprehensive analysis of the media controversy surrounding African-centred schools, as well as candid reflections on the personal challenges of fighting a largely unpopular battle.

The African Diaspora from the Author: Isidore Okpewho. These essays contribute To The debate between those who believe that the African origin of blacks in western society is central to their identity and outlook and those who deny that proposition. The contributors ponder the key questions underlying that controversy. Their 33 essays are divided into five main parts: The Diaspora: Orientation and Determinations; Addressing the Constraints; Race, Gender, and Image; Creativity, Spirituality, and Identity; and Reconnecting with Africa. This book contributes To The debate between those who believe that the African origin of blacks in Western society is central to their identity and outlook and those who deny that proposition. In 33 essays, world-renowned scholars explore key questions underlying this controversy: What is the character of New World black cultures and what are their relationships with the plural societies within which they function? How did Africans manage to create viable lives for themselves in a new place? How were they able to negotiate the complex social, political and cultural spaces they encountered? How has their ancestral heritage co-existed with that of other peoples with whom they have been forced to live? This volume seeks a balanced look at the fate of the African presence in Western society as well as insights into the sources of periodic conflict between blacks and others.

Education And The Politics Of Difference from the Author: Ratna Ghosh. This book tackles the role education can play in dealing productively and peacefully with the challenges of the localization as well as the globalization of difference. The authors focus on how the politics of difference influences and is influenced by educational programs and provisions in Canada and, possibly, elsewhere in the world. They also discuss how different theories of knowledge define and represent new and established notions and practices of schooling and social development. Important factors, such as social class, race, and gender, are explored in the authors' investigation of the politics of difference in spaces of public schooling. Ghosh and Abdi contend that despite the rhetoric of official multiculturalism, and multicultural education, the realities on the ground still depict a Canadian public space in which cultural minorities and the peoples of First Nations continue to be, relatively speaking, marginalized. The authors conclude that with the continuities of the Euro-centred focus, these policies and their possible praxes have not hitherto achieved the desired goals of true multiculturalism.
