1. The Pan-African Pantheon

The University of Johannesburg’s Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation hosted a three-day conference on “The Pan-African Pantheon” at the Arts Centre at UJ’s Auckland Park Kingsway (APK) campus in Johannesburg on Friday 16 to Sunday 18 June 2017. This conference commemorated the Soweto youth uprising of 16 June 1976 against apartheid education, during which at least 176 protesting students were brutally killed. This conference also represented a concrete initiative to contribute substantively to the University of Johannesburg’s efforts to decolonise the academic curriculum, and to ensure that the epistemology of the University’s syllabi reflects its African context.
