It is among African people that human history has its origins and original meaning. History is a very human thing. We bring it to being with our own hands.
History is far more than dead dates and dead people, disasters, wars and celebrations. History is a struggle and a record of people/humans in their search for Identity and preservation of same in the process of exacting a harmonious and wholesome influence on civilized organisation of human affairs.
History therefore imposes on us the great responsibility of understanding ourselves as African people. We must therefore talk of Africa as a world historical project which seeks to pose a new paradigm for humanity and a global community which seeks to step back on the stage of human history as a free, proud and productive people, and speak their special truth to the world.
We must therefore cure ourselves of historical amnesia.
