Extractions: Indigenous Legal Systems Continue from Previous Moving down to southern Africa, one finds what Bohannan (1968) considers to be Africa's finest: Indeed, Africa is one of the homes of advanced legal institutions. Perhaps the most famous of these institutions are the courts still found among the Bantu states of the southern third of the continent (p. 199). In these states, the local or provincial chief was one of number of judges on a large and inclusive bench. The bench included representatives of all important social groups of the community. The judges formed a regular and pronounced hierarchy, and were seated in a row or an arc. The provincial chief sat in the middle; at his immediate right was the second most senior person and at his left the third most senior, and so on until the whole court was deployed in a row. Litigants stood or sat in certain areas. There were assigned places for witnesses and for the community as an audience. The court sessions were held out of doors, but there was a building to be repaired to in case of inclement weather. There was, in all cases a known and demanded decorum and order of proceedings. The plaintiff first made his case. The defendant would then respond. Witnesses would be called. After the testimony had been heard, the most junior member of the bench would pronounce judgment. His sentence would be followed by his immediate senior, who might disagree and add new perspectives. The third most junior man followed until they arrived at the middle where the head chief sat. After weighing all the evidence, and the sentences and opinions of his junior judges, he would pronounce his final judgment.

Extractions: The Languages of Africa Within the African continent, there exists a great variety of languages and ethnicities with thousands of years of history and culture. Of the languages spoken in Africa , the majority are native to the land. The clear exceptions are Arabic and European languages such as French, English, and Portuguese. However, these languages too have become an integral part of African culture and identity. Arabic itself is part of the Afro-Asiatic family of languages, that include other Semitic languages spoken in East Africa such as Amharic (official language of Ethiopia), Gurage Tigrina Tigré (sometimes known as Geez). Other groups within the Afro-Asiatic family include Camitic (Berber languages such as Tuareg and Tamazight), Cushitic Somali Oromo ) and Chadic (Hausa). Virtually all of these languages are found throughout the northern half of the continent, that is, the Sahara , the Sahel , and East Africa . In the Nile River Valley we also find several languages of the Nilo-Saharan family . These include such spoken languages as Nuer and Dinka as well as many other languages and dialects in the Sudan Ethiopia and Chad By far the most diverse language family in Africa is the N iger-Congo family . It is divided into the Kordofanian (several dialects in the Sudan Mande (Bambara and Mandinka in Mali ), and the

History J Abolition of the Slave Trade How the Atlantic slave trade came to be abolished has been the subject of ongoing historical debate. The traditional view argued by British historians for much of the 20th century was that the abolition of the slave trade was the result of a humanitarian campaign spearheaded by a handful of prominent British philanthropists. This view was challenged in the mid-20th century by historians who argued that it was hard economics, not humanitarian concerns, that ended the slave trade. According to this view, by 1800 colonial plantations were declining in profitability, while the spread of industry in Britain (

Extractions: The paper takes an idiographic view of Ethnicity. It notes that from the onset, ethnicity was never a negative term; for it denotes an extreme consciousness of and loyalty to a particular linguistic and cultural group unidentified with any other group. It was during the process of nation-building that ethnicity assumed its negative connotation. Using Liberia, Somalia, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Lesotho as examples, the paper argues that ethnic sentiments have done a lot of harm to Africa as a continent. The paper noted that since this sentiment is normally displayed in cities as different ethnic groups meet to work; the city should also be the initial place to diffuse ethnic ethical values. The paper tensions through formal education and imbibing of progressive further argues that as these remedies are being implemented social network culture will automatically be progressive in all its ramifications. Ethnicity denotes an extreme consciousness of and loyalty to a particular linguistic and cultural group unidentified with any other group (Udoh 1998:38). Such groups usually possess myth of origin, traceable to an epical ancestor or ancestress. With a strong ruling house such ethnic groups like the Yoruba, Edo, Fante were able to organize themselves into Empire or Kingdoms, conquering and incorporating other lesser ethnic groups as vassals. With the coming of colonial masters, treaties were signed with such kingdoms wherever they existed; especially during the 17th and 18th centuries (Bradbury et al 1965; Igbafe 1972).

Extractions: Caveat Site Map Imperial Africa Imperial African States that we know about mostly developed along the Sahel ("Corridor") which was the major trade route between East and West Africa. The Sahel "shore" was seen as a "coastline" on the great expanse of the Sahara Desert. Crossing the Sahara was very much like navigating the oceans in that there were few permanent features that one could follow, and one's direction was generally determined by stellar navigation. Towns in the northern Sahel were, therefore, considered trading ports, just as a town on an ocean coast might have been. Empires that developed in the southern interior of the continent are not as well documented, and while they very likely did develop, as in the case of Great Zimbabwe, almost nothing is known about them. The oldest and longest lasting of African cultures presented here is Ethiopia (originally called Abyssinia by the Romans), which developed out of Judeo-Christian Axum, and maintained it's national character to the present day despite Islamic intrusion beginning in the sixth and seventh centuries, and the Italian invasion in the late 1930's ending in 1941. When Egypt fell to Rome, Axum had already become the major trading port on the Red Sea, bringing in goods from India and southern and western Africa, and forming a hub of exchange with those regions and the Mediterranean. Early in the Christian era, Axum had extended it's influence from the Horn of Africa to the northern edge of the Abyssinian Plateau and well inland.

I just wish it had a few more pages. Don't hesitate longer! It's worth it! Preservation of African Traditions This book describes the daily life of a family of weavers of Kente cloth in Ghana. Every page has color photos of African homes, markets, people, and cloth patterns. Ideal for children who enjoy colorful pictures of other countries and for adults wishing to learn more about the art of Kente strip weaving. Includes lists of resources (books and websites)for both kids and adults. I particularly like this book because it shows how indigenous peoples can enter the modern world without sacrificing their cultural traditions.

Extractions: Portrait of a Liberation Scholar by John Henrik Clarke Almost from the beginning as a child I started to raise essential questions inside myself about the things I observed, and about the things people declared "true" and literally dared me to question. These who would impose the "truth" on me had no control over me when I was alone. I would question their truth and keep my conclusions to myself. I did not argue with them about what I thought or felt because I never told them. I lived inside myself seemingly forever and hoped for the day when I could speak my mind. Essential Questioning The earliest and most persistent question that came to my mind while growing up in a strict Baptist household and a very religious family was why do we use God to excuse so many man-made things, so much man-made misery? People in my family, community and race attribute to God a lot of things which are ungodly, and then claim that God will straighten them out in the by-and-by. We seem not to want to understand that God did not mess things up in the first place. We have made a folklore out of this limited view of God and out of God-dependency as a spiritual necessity when we gave up on ourselves or others. We say that we have done all you can for them and then leave them alone. God will fix it by-and-by. Why must God fix something that God did not initiate and did not cause? What kind of God is this, or, more precisely, what kind of faith is this? I believe that if God was merciful enough to give you a brain, two functioning hands, and two legs where you put one in front of the other, then God has given you the facility to take care of yourself, to be responsible for your actions and for what happens to you. This is as self-evident to me as abilities to taste and to distinguish between a flower and an ear of corn. We use God as an excuse for not taking responsibility for our lives. This was not an anti-God argument. We have drawn the wrong conclusions from religion. Instead of being a source of liberation, our religions have become psychological traps. It is ironic that people have to leave religion as it was (and still is) practiced in order to understand and appreciate its meaning and to enjoy its benefits.

Extractions: LECTURE IV THE FORGING OF NEW GA-DANGME UNITY AND THE KATAMANSO WAR To lead the Gá-Dangme you need the courage of Okaikoi and the sagacity of great high priests. It is a task in selflessness and courage. In all things be bold and fearless,seeking above all to ensure the security and happiness of the people. Like a good tree the strong nation requires continual pruning and reform. The good leader sleeps not for an hour, constantly seeking the interests of his people In this Lecture we examine the factors that led to the emergence of the Gá-Dangme as major players in the political scene of the Gold Coast; look at the principal reasons for the Katamanso War. Accra started to emerge from its short eclipse; the short reign of Ofori Tibo saw the the re-stabilisation of Gá-Dangme politics. The emergence of Tetteh Ahinakwa or Momotse and Okaidja as King of Accra and chief of Gbese respectively led to a reform movement which tried to cleanse the city of corruption and re-establish its politics on a sounder footing. Princes Tetteh Ahinakwa and Okaidja had been ransomed to the Dutch and had gained considerable Western education; they were therefore in a relatively good position to stand back from Gá society and objectively analyse its failures and difficulties. However, once they acceeded to office they lacked a reform party to carry out their reformist programme in the various Gá-Dangme quarters and towns. Attempts to involve the

The study of language is linguistics, an academic discipline founded by Ferdinand de Saussure. Those who speak a language are part of that language's linguistic community. Making a principled distinction between one human language and another is often not possible. One major issue is the dialect continuum phenomena, where the boundaries between named language groups are necessarily arbitrary. For instance, there are dialects of German very similar to Dutch which are not mutually intelligible with other dialects of (what we call) German.

The significant discovery of the trilingual inscription on the Rosetta Stone facilitated the deciphering of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, providing the literary keys to much ancient knowledge. Ten thousand Ottoman soldiers had not been paid and looted Egypt. Amid the breakdown of law and order, British general Hutchinson tried to protect the Mamluk beys after Yusuf Pasha killed and arrested many of them. In the March 1802 Treaty of Amiens the British agreed to withdraw from Egypt by July; but General Stuart did not pull British forces out until March 1803, taking with him Mamluk bey Muhammad Alfi, who had driven people out of Upper Egypt with his excessive taxation. To curtail Mamluk power the Ottoman sultan had decreed that Circassian slave boys were no longer allowed to be imported and sold in Egypt; the beys were assigned to the province of Aswan but were supplied with arms by Stuart. Khusrav Pasha imposed arbitrary taxes despite a weak economy and sent Albanian troops led by Tahir Pasha to pursue the Mamluks in the provinces. When the Albanians returned to Cairo for their pay, Khusrav had his troops fire on them. The Albanians bombarded the viceroy's palace, and Khusrav fled to Damietta.

Toure REVISITING THE MATTER OF POLITICAL REPRESSION: COINTELPRO And the political prisoners are those who survived. Many, such as Fred Hampton, the 21-year-old leader of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party, were outright assassinated by the US government, mostly through local police agencies or undercover agents or by means of other psychological operations. I will cite a few examples of political prisoners to illustrate my point here. In a similar case, former political prisoner Geronimo ji Jaga was released in 1997 after 27 years in prison for his political activities as a member of the Black Panther Party and the New Afrikan independence movement. The pretext for his incarceration was his conviction for the murder of a woman the regime knew he did not and could not possibly have killed. FBI documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and withheld during his trial, reveal he was under their surveillance and substantiate his innocence. Geronimo was hundreds of miles away at the time, attending a conference of political activists. Knowing he was innocent, the regimes secret police fabricated, falsified, and suppressed evidence to obtain the conviction. These cases of Mumia and Geronimo are merely two of the better known cases. But there are others:
