Summary
Pan-Africanism, the perception by people of African origins and descent that they have interests in common, has been an important by product of colonialism and the enslavement of African peoples by Europeans. Though it has taken a variety of forms over the two centuries of its fight for equality and against economic exploitation, commonality has been a unifying theme for many black people, resulting for example in the Back-to-Africa movement in the United States but also in Nationalist beliefs such as an African "supra-nation". Pan African History brings together Pan-Africanist thinkers and activists from the Anglophone and Francophone worlds of the past two hundred years. Included are well-known figures such as Malcolm X, W.E.B. Du Bois, Kwame Nkrumah, and Martin Delany, and the authors' original research on lesser-known figures such as Constance Cummings-John and Duse Mohammed Ali reveals exciting new aspects of Pan-African activism
