Steve Sharra

I am a Malawian who studies and writes about Pan-Afrikanism, Afrikan epistemology (uMunthu), the Afrikan Renaissance, and peace and social justice. I am also a student of autobiography, critical pedagogy, and critical literacy research. I am a former school teacher, freelance journalist, and educational editor. I write poetry, fiction, radio plays, and features. My blog, Afrika Aphukira (http://www.mlauzi.blogspot.com), is an optimistic expression of the theme of the African rebirth. I also follow Malawian blogs at Mlauzi’ s Bloglines (http://www.bloglines.com/blog/mlauzi).
