Nearly every inch of Africa used to be owned and controlled by the colonial powers: British, French, German, Portuguese, Belgian, Spain. Mussolini’s Italy finally went after its share with a one sided assault on Ethiopia in 1936. Is the long history of ugly colonialism in Africa finally over? Not yet, says our guest Ameth LO, a Senegalese scholar and pan-Africanist whose new article is The Long March to Post-Capitalist Transition: Pan-Africanist Perspectives. Colonial powers are now less actual countries and more international financial powers. The goal is to unite Africans in the diaspora around the world (notably the Caribbean) to become a strong unified force helping free oppressed people everywhere.
