Defined as the ideology for a new Africa, consciencism (or Nkrumahism), published 1964, is arguably Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s most critical work.
It outlines a philosophical base for the political and economic development of Africa and her subjects. As far as principles, framework and the ideological ingredients required for liberation, African’s will struggle to find a more compelling road map for liberation. In this course you will gain a detailed insight into the political mind and philosophy of one of Pan Africanism’s greatest leaders. Not only will you come to learn how he formulated the theories he espoused, but you will receive a rounded overview of the components that form what course leader Omowale Pert em-Hru calls the Pan-Afrikan Business Plan.
The course deconstructs each of the guiding principles of Nkrumahism, from humanism, materialism to egalitarianism; only to reconstruct them as a body of political consciousness that guide you to a formative anti-imperialist awareness.
