previously marginalized voices of region, ethnicity, gender, and class, black poets living
in Britain developed a distinct branch of contemporary poetry. Having emerged from a
struggle to give voice to marginalized groups in Britain, the poetry of Linton Kwesi
Johnson, David Dabydeen, and Fred D’Aguiar helped define national identity and
explored racial oppression. Motivated by a sense of responsibility towards their

Credentials:

In the post-Cold War era, religion and religious extremism has been the cause of most violent conflicts, thereby posing one of the major security challenges confronting the world and, in recent years, the stability and security of the African continent. Unfortunately, some states targeted by terrorist insurgencies, including Nigeria and Kenya, have been reactive, adopting coercive responses rather than proactive long-term measures to address the factors and drivers of religious extremism in a comprehensive and sustained manner.

Battle of Biafra: British Intelligence and Diplomacy in the Nigerian Civil War

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus is a Nigerian historian. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Ibadan and is the author of Britain’s Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War; Once Upon a Time in Biafra: Memories, Foreign Visitations, and Life Experiences in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, and other books.

In this intriguing new book, Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus examines the role of British intelligence in the Nigerian Civil War. British intelligence operations were highly successful due to a decentralized approach. Britain maintained regular supplies of arms to Nigeria despite considerable opposition at home. Thus, up-to-date information was necessary to determine the military behavior of both sides and the practicalities of arms supply for Nigeria.

Human Journeys and the Quest for Knowledge in African Writing

Author: 

Pouille, Adrien-teaches French, Francophone, and African literatures and cinemas at Wabash College, in Indiana

Credentials: 

He has contributed to The Obama Phenomenon: Change We Can (2011) and African Cultural Production and The Question of Humanism (2019). He co-authored, A Saafi-Saafi (Sébikotane Variety) and English/French Dictionary (2016).

In Human Journeys and the Quest for Knowledge in African Writing, Adrien Pouille aims to expand the conversation on what human journeys may signify in the African context with several oral and modern narratives. As one of the main informants about African migration, popular journalism has propagated a traumatic and materialistic view of African temporal and spatial movements. Such a reductive conception of the African journeys can also be found on the continent, where leaving home, to the West in particular, may be viewed by many as a quest for nothing more than economic prosperity.

African Values and Social Studies Education

Author: 

Galafa, Beaton, Lecturer in Education and Humanities, Millennium University (Malawi)

This monograph discusses the integration of traditional African values into social studies education in Malawi. It targets the curriculum as a fertile ground for breeding indigenous knowledge due to its relevance in the development of effective moral, ethical, and citizenship skills. The discussion occurs in the context of various studies on the paucity of an indigenous philosophy and the resulting dearth of local knowledge, which expose African education systems to Eurocentric values and ontologies.
