Toyin Agbetu

Toyin Agbetu is a community-educator at Ligali. A UK based, Pan African, human-rights organisation. As an activist collective, Ligali adopts a scholar-activist approach to challenging Afriphobia and the misrepresentation of African people, culture and history in the media and public spaces.  
Toyin is an independent filmmaker and neo-museologist dedicated to social justice, critical pedagogy, decoloniality and actively reframing Britain’s cultural institutions as powerful engines of radical social transformation. He studied social and cultural anthropology at UCL and his research interests include education and community development, cultures of protest, gentrification and governmental/institutional forms of activism. 

Toyin joined the Racism and Racialisation PhD Group to help oppose the ongoing intellectual, political and cultural wars being waged against society by advocates of institutional racism within and outside the academy.
