Steve Sharra · October, 2011

I am a Malawian who studies and writes about Pan-Afrikanism, Afrikan epistemology (uMunthu), the Afrikan Renaissance, and peace and social justice. I am also a student of autobiography, critical pedagogy, and critical literacy research. I am a former school teacher, freelance journalist, and educational editor. My blog, Afrika Aphukira is an afro-optimistic expression of the theme of the African rebirth. I follow Malawian blogs at MaBloga, and other blogs at Mlauzi Global. I'm on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
