About us

2016 Pursuit of Philosophy from an African Perspective

All Kevin’s siblings were admitted into French-speaking schools, while it was decided for him to go to a Dutch-speaking school because doing so would give the advantage of being bilingual. As a native Dutch, English and French speaker being part of the African diaspora in Europe, Kevin pursued studies in areas that excited his curiosity the most: the cultures, histories and philosophies of Africa with a BA in Philosophy and Masters in African Studies from the University of Oxford.
