The Tenets of African Philosophy.

Ethnocentrism in Ghanaian Politics is not Dangerous – Essamuah

Mr. Essamuah may think that the modern structure of democracy in Ghana is stable. And I can agree to a very general extent. However, even in the swing regions of Western, Central and Greater Accra, various populations of Ewes (or people loyal to them) and Asantes (or groups loyal to them) do political battle to carry those regions.

Our Environment – What the World Can Learn From Africa’s Past

In Africa, the human form has not been a prerequisite to holding rights. The oceans, rivers, forests, lands and ships still referred to in the feminine gender by traditional society, have long had an independent legal life, often with striking implications. African traditional law stands to teach us all – Africans as well - a great deal. It makes more sense than how the world is treating the environment.

The Greatest African Missionary – Kgosi Sechele vs David Livingstone

Chief Sechele's 'strange mixture' was in fact African Christianity. Unlike other converts who were content to follow European Christianity, Sechele went back to the source and recreated it as an indigenous African religion. He threw away the European depiction of Christ, white with long straight hair, and carved a statue, with profuse African features, and long twisted braids to boot, as Jesus Christ!
