    schema:description ""Sauti! (Swahili for "Voice!") is a new note in the call for Africa to extricate itself from its colonial past and create a unique identity in consonance with its own culture. In this book, author Matoane Mamabolo makes a cultural and spiritual journey, enquiring into the future of the African continent, a journey that will resonate with scholars, politicians, and thinking people, both Africans and non-Africans. Well researched, this study is detailed, meticulous, challenging, informative, and thought-provoking. Its focus is on creating a framework in which Africans can spiritually and intellectually grapple with questions relating to their beliefs and hopes - and in ways that are intelligible to Africans and relevant to their social-cultural contexts. In a thorough review of the more serious contemporary social, religious, and cultural problems that the continent is facing, the book analyzes the challenges facing Africa and provides suggestions for successful decolonization, as well as reflecting on the status of African ideas in a globalized world. The book will prove useful as a reference and handbook for students and lecturers of African Renaissance studies, politics, theology, African philosophy, and the social sciences"--Back cover."@en ;
