This article was born out of a paper the author read at the bi-annual meeting of ATIEA (Association of Theological Institutions in East Africa) held April 2000 in Arusha, Tanzania. In it, the author traces the roots and aspects of African Theology wrestling with issues of identity. In doing this, reference is made to the nascent stages in the development of African Theology and to the birth of the philosophy of Pan-Afrcanism. In conclusion, the author suggests that perhaps after all is said and done, African identity crises - even African Christian identity crises - are not that unique but part of la condition humaine. If this there is even a grain of truth in this suggestion, then perhaps our attidue towards identity in Africa should be an open, exploratory rather than one that seeks to extinguish all identity crises and provide finalized answers.
