(Pan)African Education, Legacies of Colonisation and Globalisation

Thursday 14 October 2021

Join us for what promises to be an engaging and insightful conversation with educational theorist and leading Pan-African scholar, Dr John Marah, whose 2018 seminal work, “Pan African Education: A Must for the African Union” lays out the case for prioritising the development of a robust Pan-African education agenda.


Dr Marah will take us through the impact of colonisation on education in Africa, the state of education across the Black experience today in light of ever-increasing globalisation, and why a Pan-African education agenda that nurtures trans-national and trans-cultural citizenship is of critical importance to the future development of the continent and its diaspora.


  • Welcome and Introductions (10 minutes)
  • Presentation, Dr John Marah (20 minutes)
  • Discussion & Q&A, Dr John Marah and Apeike Umolu (60 minutes)

Dr Marah is a Professor of African and African American Studies at the State University of New York, Brockport. He is the former Chair of the Department and has written seminal works on Pan-African Education including “Pan-African Education: A Must for the African Union” (2018), and “Pan-African Education: The Last Stage of Educational Developments in Africa” (1989).
