Nkrumah Did Not Force His Views On African Leaders


Knowing what we know from Hume, Jefferson, Hegel, Soyinka, Mazrui & others, from intellectual Gigantomachy to intellectual Titanomachy, how does the Nkrumah model & Pan-Africanism transition from rhetorical historicity to what I will call rhetorical futuristics.

Where alternative African futures would be crafted - writing scenarios of possible African futures, examining probable African futures, and zeroing in on selecting preferable African future. African think tanks using computer models and future-oriented narratives would assist in this direction.

We have to design our own futures period.
