Abstract:In this address, the second Billy Dudley memorial lecture delivered at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, on 27 July 2005, the author talks of African nationalism as an antithesis of globalization, equating globalization with imperialism and African nationalism with Pan-Africanism. First, he identifies some of the important tensions in the thought and practice of African nationalists of the independence period, particularly Kwame Nkrumah and Julius Nyerere. Second, he argues that Pan-Africanism is the ideology of national liberation at the continental level in the post-Cold War era just as nationalism was the ideology of liberation in the post-Second World War era and suggests ways in which Pan-Africanism needs to be modified in order to play this role.
