This special issue proposes to look at and highlight pan-African feminist popular education in global Africa. Global Africa in this instance refers to African descendants at home and abroad. Those abroad include persons who have African ancestry; but who cannot tie their direct lineage to a particular community due to the Indian and Atlantic Ocean slave trades and those who migrated as a result of forced or voluntary migration from the continent.
While academic debates about knowledge production, teaching and learning often focuses on knowledge produced and learning happening in formal institutions and ‘traditional’ classrooms, decolonial and pan-African feminists have equally emphasised the multiple ways of knowing and alternative sites at which knowledge production and learning take place (Mama 2017). Popular education, which has a long history within the feminist and pan-African movement, is one way in which learning outside the classrooms has occurred (Fakier & Cock 2018; Endresen 2013; Choundry & Kapoor 2010; Chigudu 2002).
