“Why as blacks South Africans,we have to campaign and toyi-toyi all the time in order for us to get justice in this country,in order for us to be equal?.”

“We get to learn in cold classes and one child might say what is the use of  living my warm bed and,it even get’s to a point of children dropping out of school.”

Join this group of education and discuss how best we can make our education work for all of us.

      I must begin by thanking the amazing work done by Equal Education in continuing the battle for Equality and Social Justice. Videos are even more effective because they’re interactional and they facilitate the VOICES OF THE UNHEARD. Additinally they let our kids ‘see themselves’ as subjects of Change in SA rather than objectified statistics who are spoken about rather than being spoken TO. Their visuals and content engage their age mates in a more responsive, encouraging manner to their age-mates than when it’s academics who speak ABOUT them. The theme of reality-unhooked planning and implementation of the ‘beautiful’ post-1994 programme which retains the race-class deprivation, clarifies the observation made by many, including these students, that ‘it’s NOT YET UHURU’… Malaika wa Azania cites this reality in Memoirs of a BORN FREE’that ‘the economics and politics of race’ have not changed(2014).The lack of accountability by the department/s cited by these students indicates that poll-based enfranchisement did NOT make the post-1994 electorate and governance any different from colonial race-based marginalisation of Black youth & their mis-education. For these and more reasons, as a Social Justice and Anti-racist Post-colonial Education advocate, I am VERY GRATEFUL for the Equal Education ‘DON’T GIVE UP’ ChangeDriving program. Believe me, you energise us all!!

        Hello Thato, thanks for watching our film and for your comments. We really appreciate getting feedback from our viewers. Our aim is to give ordinary people a voice, hopefully people with influence are able to see this film and start making a change for a better South Africa. We are grateful to Equal Education for all the hard work they put into righting the wrongs of the past (and present) and hope to work with them again in the future. If you have any ideas about new subjects we can cover at Street Talk we would love to hear from you.
