Chapter

Abstract

This volume opened with a discussion about hope and desire within the context of a changing world. Nita Freire reminded the reader in her preface about the driving force underpinning Paulo Freire’s relentless questioning and search for answers:

What was the difference between a white middle-class me studying at school and my poor black school-less street friends? Why do they treat us differently? How can you justify that my neighbour or the son of a peasant are so little respected? We play together and share our sad moments, why then do they say that we are not equal?
