Book Description :

Albinism is one of the foremost disability and public health issues in Africa today. It often makes headlines in local, national and international medias and forms the basis for intense advocacy at all levels. This is primarily due to the harmful representations of persons with albinism deeply entrenched in African traditions. These deeply rooted ideologies about albinism in African thought have largely promoted the continuous discrimination, stigmatization, harming, killing, commodification and violation of the human rights of persons with albinism in African places. How has albinism emerged as a thick concept in African traditions? What are these deeply entrenched ideas about the ontology of albinism in African thought? What epistemic injustice has been done to persons with albinism in Africa places? Why do harmful beliefs about albinism still persist in modern African societies? How does the African communalistic ethic justify the harm done against persons with albinism? What is the duty to, and burden of, care for persons with albinism? What peculiar existential challenges do persons with albinism in general and females with albinism in particular face in African societies and how can they be overcome? What can be learnt from the education philosophy of reconstructionism and genetic engineering in improving the wellbeing of persons with albinism? African Philosophy and the Otherness of Albinism: White Skin, Black Race digs deep into these philosophical questions revealing fascinating but latent aspects of how albinism is understood in African places as a necessary step to take in improving the wellbeing and integrity of persons with albinism in Africa today. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of African philosophy, sociology, African studies and disability studies.

Book Description :

Diploma Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Law - Public Law / Constitutional Law / Basic Rights, grade: 64, De Montfort University Leicester (Business and Law), course: LAW, language: English, abstract: This paper examines the question, how, based on the right to life, the lifes of people with albinism can and should be protected in the case of Kenya. The Right to life is an inherent right, and both state and non-state actors have legal obligations to refrain from intentional and unlawful deprivation of life. In spite of this, the belief and practice of witchcraft are traditionally rooted in a number of African communities, this has led in a series of violations of the rights of persons living with albinism. The most barbaric of all being the evisceration of their body parts or bones, to use them in witchcraft rituals, aimed to bring success in one's life, cure diseases and also keep evil at bay. Nevertheless, this study examines the legal significance of international treaties protecting the right to life and security of persons living with albinism. An illustration of the principles established in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with disabilities and other core international norms that ordinarily protect the right to life will be demonstrated. Notably, international human rights serve as a catalyst for legal change, through furthering the promotion of fundamental human rights. In light of this observation, this study illustrates national court cases, domestic laws and practices structured by the Kenyan government that comply with its international obligations, in promoting and preserving the right to life of people with albinism.

Book Description :

This story takes place after the PanAfrican reform. All the countries in Africa have fused to become one massive body where the people are categorized by their social order and live accordingly. It follows the life of a boy born with albinism in Africa, where it is very dangerous to be an albino. As a baby, he was banished to the extreme of the continent where he was raised by a prison officer and his wife who were instructed to give him a life designed to keep him from finding out who he truly was, but when circumstances change, he journeys to the centre of Africa to find out who his parents are and the circumstances of his birth. Along the way he encounters for the first time hatred and discrimination from others because of the colour of his skin and the traditional beliefs about albinism. As he goes further in his journey, he discovers several truths about himself and about society around him, but at the very pinnacle of his story, it is clear that he will never be accepted.

Book Description :

Little is understood about the everyday lives of mothers of children with albinism in sub-Saharan Africa, specifically Tanzania. This region has a harrowing history of discrimination and violent attacks against persons with albinism, largely rooted in cultural/spiritual beliefs and practices, and perpetuated by layers of myth about albinism. A focused critical ethnographic study, through the lens of Hudson-Weems' (2019) Africana Womanism, explored the experiences of mothers of children with albinism in Tanzania, addressed the gendered nature of this condition, and considered the human rights and resilience of the mothers. One participant's story illuminated human rights and resilience from a mother's standpoint, which was the backdrop for the presentation of findings that included stories of other mothers with albinism and the perspectives of key stakeholders. These findings highlight the social ecological nature of resilience for these mothers. Recommendations focus on policy, advocacy, and research related to health and social services and education.

Book Description :

In this volume, scholars from philosophy, sociology, history, theology, women’s studies, and law explore the looming ethical and social implications of new biotechnologies that are rapidly making it possible to enhance an individual’s mental and physical attributes in ways previously only imagined. To clarify the issues, the contributors grapple with the central concept of "enhancement" and probe the uses and abuses of the term. Focusing in particular on the moral issues pertaining to cosmetic surgery and cosmetic psychopharmacology (a category which includes Prozac), they also examine notions of identity, authenticity, normality, and complicity. Other essays in this collection address the social ramifications of the new technologies, including the problems of access and fairness.
