I’m a doctoral researcher with the Graduate School of Education at the University of Exeter. My interest in decoloniality relates to emergent research which articulates a living history of critical dialogue and dialogic teaching from across Black communities. I used to be a teacher, senior leader, and local authority advisor in England and Wales schools. I’ve written essays, chapters and co-edited books. My most recent is Beyond The Blockade: Education in Cuba (2020: co-editor) – which includes essays by UK Black educators observing educational realities for Afro-Cuba in Havana and Pinar del Rio. I also like singing, dancing to roots reggae, UK Garage and Jungle while cooking ital food. I live in Devon with my wife and two daughters.
