Abstract

One of the essential and often overlooked aspects of promoting race equality and redressing structural inequalities in contemporary higher education institutions (HEIs), is the appreciation of what I call, ‘black intellectual capital’ as a pedagogy of hope, which can be promoted through an Inspirational Speaker Program. This is a practical strategy that departs from the individualistic conception of knowledge proposed by Descartes and embraces a collaborative worldview that acknowledges knowledge as contingent upon relationship with other cultures and knowledge systems.
