Epigraphs
The
 Husia
teaches that we must emulate the excellence of our ancestors, study their wise teachings, great works and good deeds in everyday life, and struggle to embody and add to the legacy they’ve left. It states that the wisdom of the ancestors are “teachings for life, instructions for well-being and flourishing, for directing one on the path of life and causing one to flourish on earth.” And we are to “love learning, seek after truth,” and constantly bring forth that which is useful for the people and the future. --[Maulana Karenga, “The Sacred Narrative Of Africans”,
 Los Angeles Sentinel
, 11-14-13, pp.6-7 ]

Foreword
We need to study the lessons of the Pan-Africanism Movement of the last two centuries, develop its good points and discard its mistakes. One of the most tempting mistakes for sectarian minds is to think that any one person has the solution to the multitude of  problems that confront us as a race of people. Certainly not Du Bois, certainly not  Nkrumah; and not even Garvey the Great, was able to display that humanly impossible omniscience. This anthology aims to help correct that mistake by showing us a sample of the range of wise thoughts that have emerged from the many different terrains of the Pan-African struggle for liberation from slavery, colonialism, neo-colonialism and racism.
 
2 As these selections show, much intellectual work has been done by Pan-Africanist thinkers in the two centuries since 1791. However, their work has not been collected and made available for tackling the many tasks of Pan-Africanism. As these selections show, useful insights have been supplied into such nitty-gritty issues as mental independence; “Independence or death”; criticism and self-criticism; the (Black) Race First principle; racial honor, racial self-reliance, racial unity, racial solidarity, racial privacy; our implacable white enemies—Arab and European; economic decolonization; cultural liberation; Afrocentric education; Black power; leadership and followership; war; charity; propaganda; polygyny; racism/Negrophobia; Marxism and  blacks; re-Africanization; Afrocentrism; people’s democracy; Black African weaknesses; the Pan-African Congress; the national army; collective security; cultural renaissance; the lure of Marxism; integrating ancestral African values into contemporary African life; race and class; the one-drop-rule; justified prejudice; the extermination of the Black race;  Negrocentricity; scientific socialism; communalism; socialism and racism; ethno-federalism, ethnic autonomy and African unity; Kwanzaa and unity; Diaspora-Homeland relations; and much else. These are some of the nitty-gritty issues we must grapple with, the engineering details we must think through, if we are to move beyond the affirmation of lofty sentiments and vague ambitions, and actually get down to building the structures for attaining the objectives of Pan-Africanism. I urge other Black African scholars to contribute to this effort by searching through the Pan-Africanist literature and compiling anthologies of the wisdom they find therein. Then, the next generation of Pan-Africanists will have anthologies to educate them on the tenets and ideas and best practices of Pan-Africanism, and so be spared the misfortune of intellectual orphans who start out in a vacuum of ideas, as if they have no heritage to draw from.
Please Note:
This is a work in progress. I shall continue to add to it as I find more words of Pan-Africanist wisdom. So, treat this as a preliminary report. The dates in the format < 19xy-19xz > are the dates, if known, of the person quoted; the date in the format (19yy) is the date, if known, of the statement just quoted. Chinweizu’s commentaries are in
 red bold italics .
They are comments or bald statements or summaries of positions that, when the anthology is completed, will be argued and demonstrated in mini essays. Some of these comments elaborate on, and some amend, the quoted statement. --Chinweizu ---------------------------------------------------------------
Section A
Examples of ideas (principles, doctrines and tasks) formulated by Black thinkers as the lessons from the rich experience of Black struggles against imperialism, slavery, colonialism, racism and neo-colonialism, both in Black Africa and the diaspora.
