Abstract:This special issue focuses on African political thought, as it emerged in the context of and contributed to fundamental changes in world order during the twentieth century, and as it continues to speak to the present global condition. The six essays in this issue form a set of close readings of twentieth-century African political theorists insofar as their work represents part of a conversation that Africa had with itself and with the rest of the world regarding freedom, independence, emancipation and statehood. The essays collected here analyse the ideas and practices of a number of prominent figures including Léopold Sédar Senghor, Steve Biko, Amílcar Cabral, Agostinho Neto, Julius Nyerere, Gabriel d'Arboussier and Sembène Ousmane. Contributions: African political thought of the twentieth century: a reengagement (Shiera S. el-Malik, Branwen Gruffydd Jones); From rupture to revolution: race, culture and the practice of anti-colonial thought (Branwen Gruffydd Jones); Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere's philosophy, contribution, and legacies (Ogenga Otunnu); Cinema is our 'night school': appropriation, falsification, and dissensus in the art of Ousmane Sembène (Sam Okoth Opondo); Interruptive discourses: Léopold Senghor, 'African Emotion' and the poetry of politics (Shiera S. el-Malik); Steve Biko and a critique of global governance as white liberalism (Isaac Kamola); Remembering democracy: anticolonial evocations and invocations of a disappearing norm (Siba N. Grovogui). [ASC Leiden abstract]
