Ashanti Kunene is a social justice activist, poet, decolonial dialogue facilitator, published writer and the founder of Learning 2 Unlearn. She holds a BA (Hons) International Studies Cum Laude from Stellenbosch University with an interest in big data analytics, pedagogical design and dialogical narrative change work.


Ashanti was a prominent student leader at Stellenbosch University during the 2015/2016 #FeesMustFall student movement. It was during this time that the idea for Learning 2 Unlearn as a social justice focused online learning platform was born.​ Learning to unlearn is an ongoing journey. In doing this work of writing and curating social justice focused short courses, she seeks to help people (and herself) live braver, more authentic lives in a crazy world.
