Pan-Africanism: Is it Possible?


#1

Owing to the slave trade trend that prospered in centuries before, we have Africans scattered all over the world in different countries and settlements. Since continental Africans and people of African descent shared and still share a similar fate of oppression, suppression and outright inhumane treatment, an intellectual school of thought emerged. This school of thought is called pan-African and it seeks to unify Africans from all borders and climes with the belief that we all share a common destiny. Countries like Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana and indeed the whole of the South Americas have at one time or the other laid their support to the pan-African movement. The question however is, can pan-Africanism be achieved and to what end will a unification between Africans all over the world be?
