AFRICA FOR AFRICANS, the fate of Africa in the hands of Africans!

Pan-Africanism is an ideology and movement that encourages the solidarity of Africans worldwide. It is based on the belief that unity is vital to economic, social and political progress and so, it aims to “unify and uplift” people of African descent.
The ideology asserts that the fate of all African peoples and countries are intertwined. At its core Pan-Africanism is “a belief that African peoples, both on the continent and in the Diaspora, share not merely a common history, but a common destiny”.
With this common history and destiny in mind, Pan-Africanism stresses the need for “collective self-reliance”. This was promoted by many Pan-African leaders, such as Kwame Nkrumah, for example. Solidarity will enable self-reliance, allowing the continent’s potential to independently provide for its people to be fulfilled. Crucially, an all-African alliance will empower African peoples globally. The realisation of the Pan-African objective would lead to “power consolidation in Africa”, which “would compel a reallocation of global resources, as well as unleashing a fiercer psychological energy and political assertion ... that would unsettle social and political (power) structures ... in the Americas". United, African nations will have the economic, political and social clout to act and compete on the world stage as do other large entities, such as the EU and the USA.
Advocates of Pan-Africanism – i.e. “Pan-Africans” or “Pan-Africanists” - often champion socialist principles and tend to be opposed to external political and economic involvement on the continent. Critics accuse the ideology of homogenising the experience of people of African descent. They also point to the difficulties of reconciling current divisions within countries on the continent and within communities in the Diaspora.
