Africa must retrace its roots, regain its pride

Africa must retrace its roots, regain its pride | Africa | Scoop.it

The ideas that we are religious, civil, educated or democratic are all measured ideals for which the colonial objectives were primed.

In history, we learnt that at the advent of missionary expeditions into the hinterland of Africa, religion was advanced to introduce civility to the backward savages there.

With religion came Western education and the reinforcement of colonial language as the authenticated instruments of dominion.

Everything else African or black was subordinated and derogated as primitive, insufficient and backward, while an adult African, however grown, was viewed as a ‘big child’ incapable of truth-telling and self-governance, fit for only menial undertakings.

As such, our history is buried in a heap of tragic episodes, often romanticized by victors of colonial advents. In the colonial narratives, our tragic history is disguised as deliberate investments to enlighten backward people, no matter the cost.

This is unfortunate because the black consciousness often requires a revisit of its heartrending history in order to make sense of it.

It is this historical fact that also drives the consciousness. Without such courageous effort to revisit the past, the black consciousness would remain a recycling of internalized colonial distortion of us, something which we are not.

In the pecking order of global challenges, the Black race has seemingly lost the ideals of the original struggle for liberation that Frantz Fanon and others advocated. If African liberators are still trying to stay visible, then their efforts are not paying off.

This reticle has to do with religion because Adria is talking about needing to regain there pride. They say that adult Africans are just looked at as bigger children when they are very bright, civil, and educated people. They want people to realize they are very religious people.
