Comments or Notes: With the 50th anniversary of the Organization of African Unity, the African Union has declared 2013 the year of Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance. Over the decades, African peoples around the world have struggled for political, economic, and cultural independence under the banner of Pan-Africanism. P. Olisanwuche Esedebe defines Pan-Africanism as “a political and cultural phenomenon that regards Africa, Africans, and African descendants abroad as a unit. It seeks to regenerate and unify Africa and promote a feeling of oneness among the people of the African world.” Adding to Esedebe’s definition this course will expound upon Pan-Africanism as a political and cultural movement as well as an ideology, tracing its development from the late 19th century thought of Henry Sylvester Williams and W.E.B. Dubois into the 21st century. The course is outlined chronologically and divided into several themes as delineated in the Course Outline. Geographically this course will focus heavily on Pan-Africanism in the United States and the U.K. as well as Africa and the Caribbean. The course will also touch briefly on Pan-Africanism in Latin America and Asia although more research remains to be done in these areas. In addition to the concept of Pan-Africanism we will explore related themes such as Black Nationalism, Ethiopianism, and Negritude while situating key figures of the African diaspora within the intellectual genealogy of Pan-African thought. Lectures will be supplemented with documentary film and other multimedia sources.
