Oxford Union Debate: This House Believes British Education Perpetuates Racism
2 March 2017 at 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
On 2 March 2017, Elleke will participate in the Oxford Union’s Education and Racism Debate, where she will argue for the proposition: This House Believes British Education Perpetuates Racism.
The Union’s event page reads:
From history to literature, our education – whether at school or at university – is profoundly intertwined with narratives of race. Britain’s education system has been accused of failing to draw attention to the Empire’s atrocities, neglecting BME perspectives, and discounting non-Western contributions to culture and science – issues which Rhodes Must Fall has recently drawn attention to across Oxford. Is it failing in these ways, and thus perpetuating racism?
