A special feature of the volume is its historical dimension, including a substantial treatment of ancient African philosophy as encountered in ancient Egypt, an extended study of medieval North African thinkers, an enlightening discussion of pre-colonial African philosophy, and a history of African political thought in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries."--Jacket

Things fall apart : authoritative text, contexts and criticism by Chinua Achebe ( Book )

Négritude et condition africaine by Abiola Irele ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mouvement littéraire et politique né dans les années 1930, la Négritude fut d'abord une réponse à la domination culturelle occidentale engendrée par la colonisation. Chez le grand poète Aimé Césaire (1913-2008), qui forgea ce mot de Négritude, l'inspiration a eu pour fondement une conscience raciale aiguë. Une conscience historique de l'expérience du Nègre, sur qui s'étaient abattues la domination et l'abjection. A partir de l'œuvre de Césaire et de celle d'autres grands écrivains et hommes politiques, parmi lesquels Senghor, Soyinka, Achebe, Cheikh Anta Diop, l'auteur propose une réflexion culturelle et sociale approfondie, nourrie de sa triple filiation - yoruba, britannique, française. Il analyse ici les enjeux, les courants, les revirements qui composent la très riche histoire de la Négritude et, à travers elle, de la condition africaine elle-même. A la fois révolte du nationalisme culturel noir, histoire intellectuelle et utopie créatrice, la Négritude rencontre aujourd'hui un regain d'intérêt au sein de la nouvelle génération des écrivains et intellectuels africains
