I believe that as a pragmatic panafricanist he believed that the largest African federal State, Nigeria with its 36 states, has always been a living experiment in panafricanism. Soyinka kept Nigeria in mind and the fact that the unity of the country was not a nationalistic goal, but rather a consequence of a pragmatic panafricanism.
Rappers often consider themselves as members of the Panafricanism that Marcus Garvey advocated in the beginning of the 20th century (Spady et al.
Kemedjo's reflection offers a fascinating perspective on Conde's oeuvre as it relates to major political ideologies (negritude, Panafricanism, black nationalism).
HaileMariam Dessalegn, Chairperson of the African Union and Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, stressed the importance of this day saying that it is an occasion to honour the founders of the continental organisation who created the OAU 50 years ago, with a resolve to pursue the quest for African Unity in earnest, inspired by the ideals of panafricanism.
Jayne Cortez made poems as direct as "Find Your Own Voice" as foundational as "If the Drum Is a Woman" and as mirthful as "I See Chano Pozo."

The fourth chapter similarly describes the theoretical space allotted to the palabre in the ideologies of panafricanism, African socialism, Christian evangelism, and negritude, showing how each participated in the dereliction of communities through their refusal to develop the means to manage internal diversity and conflict in deference to chimerical totalitarian visions of primordial unity and monological consensus.
Anti-colonial nationalist discourses, of which the constitution of African-American Studies is a major consequence, reached this ironically liberating and anti-expansionist insight since its birth in the early decades of this century (I am speaking globally here, so I mean the movement PanAfricanism), an insight which is only now being discovered by current poststructuralist thought.
