nora chipaumire was born in 1965 in what was then known as Umtali , Rhodesia ( Mutare | Zimbabwe ) . She is a product of colonial education for black native Africans - known as group B schooling . She has pursued other studies at the university of Zimbabwe ( law ) and mills college , Oakland | CA. ( dance ) . As African knowledge acquisition does not come with baccalaureates it is impossible to quantify what the African body holds . chipaumire acknowledges these knowledges in addition to the western forms branded into her since 1965 .
