Chapter Summary

This chapter articulates the idea of globalisation and its implication for African humanity. Thereafter, it focuses on the globalisation in relation to the African irony: the fact that globalisation as it operates at the moment does not serve the anticipations and desires of African people. The chapter presents the need for a better ideological response to the challenges of globalisation that is, one that will position Africa in a better way to respond to the challenges of globalisation. The author attempts to provides a critique of a predominant ideology which appears to have the potential to solve this problem but which, in view of the claims of the chapter, is grossly deficient for this purpose. The chapter has made a case for ideological re-birth to accommodate the large block of the Pro-African world globally, through an idea of globalisation that carries along the totality of the weight of African experience.

Keywords: African humanity; economic globalisation; Pro-African world
