dc.description.abstract Conceptions of Blackness in the contemporary South African academe are premised on a decolonial approach that privileges Indigenous knowledges and bodies, while eliding a Black Consciousness understanding of Blackness that informed the fight against oppression and apartheid. In a conversation with Achmat Dangor held on Thursday 15th February 2018, #ThinkingAfrica explored conceptions of Blackness through the novel Dikeledi: Child of Tears, No More. The primary concern that Dangor addressed, focused on how the contemporary student body and Black scholars in the university sector are conceptualising notions of difference. en_ZA
