Kaleke is a Nigerian-Ugandan MA African Studies student. Her area of focus concerns Pan-Africanism, indigenous knowledge systems, decolonisation, de-mythologizing and de-silencing studies. Over the past year, she has developed research on Pragmatic Pan-Africanism – essentially the institutionalisation of Pan-African ideology and epistemology. Her work has lead to published articles, policy internships at leading Think Tanks in London, Delhi and Brussels. Kaleke has chaired, hosted and spoken at various symposiums concerning decolonisation, feminisms and anti-racisms. Kaleke was the valedictorian at her former University and is also the creator of a linguistically diverse literature website. ADF is a symposium that aligns closely with her research and furthermore facilitates a space in which African innovation, ideas and knowledge are harnessed and disseminated.
