Abstract:In this collection of essays contemporary thinkers from across Africa and elsewhere commemorate the anniversary of the assassination of Amilcar Cabral, revolutionary, poet, liberation philosopher, and leader of the independence movement of Guinea Bissau and Cap Verde. The volume is divided into seven parts: 1. Introduction: Amilcar Cabral and the struggle of memory against forgetting; 2. discussions on the legacy of Cabral and the reasons why Cabral remains important to this day; 3. reflections on Cabral, some of which very personal, with a focus on the current relevance of Cabral; 4. Cabral, women, and emancipation. Liberation movements generally promoted male leadership to the exclusion of women, and additionally subordinated the struggles against male supremacy to the national, popular struggle; 5. Cabral and the pan-Africanists. This includes efforts over the past several years to renew Pan-Africanism and generate a twenty-first century Pan-Africanism that is 'nonracial' (antiracist) in the South-African sense; 6. culture, education and national liberation, including a contribution of Cabral and Freire; and 7. Cabral and the African American struggle. A selected bibliography provides an overview of Cabral's writings and of writings about Cabral. [ASC Leiden abstract]
