POST COLONIAL STUDIES
Words by Sienna Parvezza | Published 10 March 2014
Post Colonial Studies is a study area in itself. That is to say, 'What happened after the European and particularly the Crown Empire Colonial Administration left Africa? The sad fact, is that many Rulers and ex-office officials continued the 'practise' of 'colonialism', and this has lead to more devastation to Africa than drought and natural disaster. Africa has been plagued with 'corruption' and 'poverty', the only diseases that can be sporned from unjustified greed, brutish behaviour and cultural supremacy. If you think that this is something that you can 'figure' over night - definately not, because a leading sistah of the community has rose to the ranks of 'Post Colonial Studies'. Agha has actually specialised in it, and has even formed her own company dedicated to the longevity of the 'discussions' - phenomenol! This sistah is also a full membership company of Hart Culture C.I.C. -
the UK's Leading Arts & Cultural Engagement Firm, and has recently published a flash of top Interviews about Post - Colonialism, where she intends to go with her company and how she began, well, doing what she does best - Post Colonial Study.
Ekua Agha is an academic and researcher. She is also a director at Wednesday66 Productions. Inspired by the ideology behind the films of the award winning Senegalese filmmaker, Ousmane Sembène, she decided to set up a production company that will emulate Sembène’s vision for African and other non - Western cinema. Agha is a graduate of Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge and the University of Westminster, London. Further, she is a qualified teacher with a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PG Cert Ed) from Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent. Her academic discipline is Francophone post-colonial studies with interests in African literature, history, politics and culture. She is also a board member of Museum Africa, Chicago.
Wednesday66 Productions is building character, finesse and leverage. Agha was also responsible for illustrating Tony Marinho’s book, The Laterite Road: An African Travel Odyssey.
