The Humanistic impulse in Africana Struggle

A central theme in the narrative of “black” life as such is the theme of “rendering human” and defining humanity such that Afrikan people, in their struggle for their own survival and empowerment and growth inevitably provide theories, methodologies, and operational templates for others, even those who are and have been their oppressors, to come to contemplate their own humanity and to challenge extant limited definitions of humanity that facilitate oppression in a general sense. In this sense, the Africana struggle for humanity is one with the struggle for humanity by humanity itself.
