This week on Let’s Talk – Black Politics, Chelsea & David catch up with Dr. Shane Coghill to talk about the power of Black knowledge and the politics of Black knowledge production. They dig into some of Uncle Shane’s own stories of navigating colonial institutions – from youth prisons to universities – and the way that he found himself cast as a disruptive trouble-maker just by standing his ground as a knower.

Weaving together his own stories of over-policing, surveillance and incarceration with his uncompromising commitment to justice and sovereignty for Blackfullas, Dr Coghill offers important insights into Black knowledge production.
