Decolonizing Gender Activism

As an American African, part of Moji’s deschooling journey has been unlearning and pointing out white supremacy in all it’s hidden forms. In this final episode of the Wellness Spiral series, Moji uses bits of the book titled The Invention of Women: Making an African Sense of Western Gender Discourses to emphasize the need to disrupt supremacy and colonization in gender activism and activism in general. Moji asserts that American schools and culture are rooted in white supremacy and ignorance and western activism can lead to low-key colonization, and offers a space to unlearn habits of supremacy that lead to intellectual & ideological colonization and marginalization of cultures of color.  #BIPOCinSDE
