Chinweizu Ibekwe, Ph.D.
Chinweizu Ibekwe, Ph.D. is a Nigerian critic, poet, and journalist. He is the author of the classical works: “The West and The Rest of US” and “Decolonizing the African Mind.”
Dr Chinweizu has put a spotlight on the largely ignored process of forced ‘Arabization’ and anti-African genocide that has been taking place across Northern Africa for hundreds of years. He also questions the pursuit of what he terms ‘Continentalist pan-Africanism’ by most African pan-Africanists given this foregoing racialized assault by Arabs and Arabized Africans; and instead suggests that the pursuit of Black Power pan-Africanism is a more rational concept for African (black) people to organize around.
