Summary "This book challenges educational discourse in relation to teaching about Africa at all levels of the education system in the Global North, with a specific case study focus in the Republic of Ireland. The book provides an interrogation of the proliferation of negative imagery of African people and African countries, and the impact of this on the attitudes and perceptions of children and young people. It explores how predominantly negative stereotyping can be challenged in classrooms through an educational approach grounded in principles of solidarity, interdependence and social justice"-- Provided by publisher
