I,Too, Am Oxford

African Students Speak Out as Part of the “I, too, am Oxford” Project fighting African stereotypes….inspired by the  recent ‘I, too, am Harvard’ initiative.

The Harvard project resonated with a sense of communal disaffection that students of colour at Oxford have with the University. A message that was consistently reaffirmed throughout the day was that students in their daily encounters at Oxford are made to feel different and Othered from the Oxford community. Hopefully this project will demonstrate that despite there being a greater number of students of colour studying at Oxford now than there has ever been before, there are still issues that need to be discussed. In participating in ‘I, Too, Am Oxford,’ students of colour are demanding that a discussion on race be taken seriously and that real institutional change occur.
