Abstract

Pan-Africanism is the idea that people of African descent worldwide share historical, cultural, sociological, and ancestral heritage to the continent of Africa. This universal kinship to the African continent reflects in their mutual conditions of socio-economic inequity based on a contrived international racial hierarchy, colonialism, neocolonialism–and their hegemonic reiterations in other institutionalized systems of oppression. As a result of this shared collective origin to the African continent and worldwide systems of socio-economic injustice, people of African descent feel a need to pool together to overcome their shared oppression. 1
