E3 Learning 2 Unlearn, love as the path to healing with Ashanti Kunene
Apr 05, 2023 Season 1 Episode 3
Aubrey Morgan Yee / Ashanti Kunene

Ashanti is an activist poet, decolonial dialogue facilitator, published writer, my partner in facilitation at the Culture Hack Labs Rhizome Fellowship and the founder of Learning 2 Unlearn  - a decolonial narrative consultancy. She was a prominent student leader at Stellenbosch University during the 2015/2016 #FeesMustFall student movement in South Africa. And following the 2020 #BlackLives Matter uprising, the idea for Learning 2 Unlearn was born.  

 Ashanti shares with us her experience of growing up as a young black woman in the relative comfort of of post-apartheid South African suburbia and the radical awakening she had as a student during the Fees Must Fall student uprising. From her work with decolonizing narratives to spoken word poetry to her recent stint on the Parisian runway at fashion week, Ashanti is a powerful beam of light. This is a vibrant episode, alive with the passion and purpose of a beautiful human whom I am blessed to call my soul sister and friend.
