Panafricanism as the promise of a new African Civilisation
As I flew from Canada to 4 african countries between December 2011 and January 2012 - Ghana, Togo, Benin and Cameroon -, I've had the conviction that all Black People are the same. Same realities, same faces, same languages for many areas, we are all one. The few differences I've noticed just make the diversity of Africa even prettier!

As I flew from Canada to 4 african countries between December 2011 and January 2012 - Ghana, Togo, Benin and Cameroon -, I've had the conviction that all Black People are the same. Same realities, same faces, same languages for many areas, we are all one. The few differences I've noticed just make the diversity of Africa even prettier!

I've seen Samuel Eto'o's cameroonian jersey in Togo, I've heard Congolese music in all countries I've been, I've seen Nigerian movie stars posters in the streets of Cotonou, in Benin, I've heard ivorian Coupé-décalé in the deepest forest of Cameroon. These are just a few examples to show that Africa has no borders except the arbitrary colonial cutoff of our land. We inherited physical borders that are not ours, but African people today doesn't even have to militate for panafricanism as they already live in it! Politicians simply have to make regional integration official and far less complicated than it is now.

Africans worlwide - by African I always mean Black people -, let's get together again! Let's make African Culture stronger! Let's work to give our homeland all the honour it deserves. Together we are stronger! Panafricanism truly is the promise of a new era for Africans, a new African Civilisation.
