Dr Eleanor Wint, Pan African social activist, retired professor of Social Work and Sociology, now resident in Canada after working with families and communities in the USA, the Caribbean, Ethiopia, Ghana and South Africa. As she says, her website EAWpublications is dedicated to learning and writing to enrich the lives of parents, children and families through the use of books, articles, and blogs authored by Eleanor Wint. From managing the Rita Marley Foundation to grow the village of Konkunuru in Ghana, to learning how Black impoverished men feel about parenting in the Eastern Caribbean, Dr Wint is adamant that parents, all over the world, have the same needs and wants in every culture.
Dr Eleanor has published a number of papers and books in academia and mainstream. Recently, she is devoting her time to working with children, co-authoring books which help them to become more self-confident and aware of their positive self. The “Tweet Tweet & Friends” series co-authored with Lois Wint-Rose helps children 5-9 years old develop ways of managing their everyday emotions.
A growing scholar of Garveyism and its focus on “inculcating pride and nobility of race”, her published book “Marcus Teaches Us” continues to evolve. Presently, the Volume One which was co-authored with the renown artist, Ireko Baker, is a part of the MGIS (Marcus Garvey in Schools) pilot project in Jamaica.
