Abstract:This article examines aspects of African culture seen as projects from an existentialist perspective and seeks to make a robust contribution to African studies and in particular interdisciplinary African studies. It offers a focus on the interiorization of African cultural project-as-text as an upsurge of being; interiorization(s) of being projects of African being and consciousness. This study on African subjectivity situates the African cultural constituency within a specific existentialist schematic: the African for itself in the form of cultural project-as-text, a reflective black consciousness, the black 'I' or African being-with-others in the form of cultural projects-as-texts, a self-reflective conscious of black consciousness, the black 'we'-subject, 'us', and lastly African being-for-ourselves Black existentialist philosophy is predicated on the liberation of all black people from oppression.
