CriSHET, CANRAD & Department of Student Governance and Development Present: 

A conversion with essayist & Black Power Front Activist, Veli Mbele, on the experiences of black students in higher education.

The recent Mandela University student protest around the NSFAS  fiasco and tragedy suggests that we need to critically  interrogate why and how the Black student experience is  continuously hidden under the metaphorical invisibility cloak;  across the system. This reproduces an already existing  Eurocentric, anti-Black and patriarchal system with its   ingrained brutality. How should the Black student activists, as a younger  component of the Black revolutionary intelligentsia, play a role  in universities to fight against such invisibilisation as central to the  fight against colonial domination and its epistemic violences  that dehumanise the black body?
