Y'all can I discuss a #microaggression that occurred last week at an #AWP19 after-party? Because, as I told my co-workers this morning, it is indicative of a continual issue in forward momentum in the industry and in the country.

It was not surprising that the most-read blog was about decolonisation. Republished from @TC_Africa, written by Morreira and Luckett, it was a very practical approach to decolonisation. Giving teachers 10 questions to ask when considering decolonising.

But we must not forget that decolonisation is not just about what we teach but is also evidenced by the power and control structures in society. In this article, I explore how this is evidenced in the origins and current practices of the Nigerian Police.
