In this warm and honest memoir, celebrated academic Njoki Wane shares her journey from her parents' small coffee farm in Kenya, where she helped her mother in the fields as a child, to her current work as a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Moving smoothly between time and place, Wane uses memories, painful and tender, to show how her early lessons and the support given by her family allowed her to succeed as a woman of colour in the academy, and to later lift up her students facing their own difficult journeys.

The Politics of Cultural Knowledge

The advent and implementation of European colonialism have disrupted innumerable epistemological geographies around the globe. Countless cultural ways of knowing and local educational practices have in some way been displaced and dislocated within the universalizing project of the Euro-Colonial Empire. This book revisits the colonial relations of culture and education, questions various embedded imperial procedures and extricates the strategic offerings of local ways of knowing which resisted colonial imposition. The contributors of this collection are concerned with the ways in which colonial education forms the governing edict for local peoples. In The Politics of Cultural Knowledge, the authors offer an alternative reading of conventional discussions of culture and what counts as knowledge concerning race, class, gender, sexuality, identity, and difference in the context of the Diaspora.

Equity in Schools and Society

This book examines equity issues in school and society, drawing on history, sociology, literature, cultural expressions, films, and theory. The main objectives of the text are: to increase critical awareness of issues concerning equity in schools and society for students and teachers; to discuss the complexities of both school and society as institutions and search for paradigms which can highlight the dilemmas and lived experiences of teachers as they grapple with the interpretation and implementation of goals, policies and work to address students' needs; to generate greater awareness of the political economy of schools and societies; to increase understanding of hidden biases such as racism, classism and sexism in order to develop practical strategies of delaing with these forms of oppression; to enhance the acquisition of critical intellectual skills related to both comprehension and analysis of teaching and learning in a culturally diverse context; and to generate and reformulate teachers' roles in relation of the multiple demands of teaching and learning in complex environments.

Indigenous African Knowledge Production

Using personal narratives collected during several years of field research in Kenya, Wane demonstrates how Embu women use proverbs, fables, and folktales to preserve and communicate their world-view, knowledge, and cultural norms. She shows how this process preserves Indigenous knowledge devalued by the colonial and post-colonial educational systems, as well as the gendered dimension of the transmission process.
