Paul will be delighted if you could join him in celebrating the publication of his book.
The book deals with the issue of African Caribbean pupil invisibility in the art and design classroom. As such it addresses African Caribbean pupil invisibility in almost any teaching and learning context. The book argues that the slave trade, which ruptured their continuities with an African past, continues to impact on the learning of such pupils relative to others. In seeking to explicate this matter, the book places African Caribbean pupils in the wider context of African, Caribbean and Western cultural identities.
"The book goes a long way beyond only being a text for Art Education students. Its arguments have salience for all Educationalists and trainee teachers, as well as for staff rooms in Britain and North America (Canada and the U.S., for example). It deals with vital questions, both for African-Caribbean students and their white and Asian classmates, canvassing issues of intellectual and cultural confidence for African-Caribbean students and historical and contemporary truth for others." Chris Searle, Director of the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre at the University of Manchester
Copies of the book will be on sale at the launch.
