dc.description.abstractWhile the Anglophone academic literature has long engaged in analysis of the role of privilege in the work of educators in the global North, this article represents an initial foray into such analysis in non-formal educational settings in the global South. Through a cultural-textual document analysis of 12 months of personal journal entries written by the author while working as a Freirean adult educator in Mozambique, this article documents a lack of recognition of social privilege exhibited by the author in these entries, which is here referred to as the White Savior complex. This article also documents how the pursuit of what Freire calls critical consciousness can effectively problematize this privileged mindset.en_US
