Overview

In 2012 the University of South Africa, in partnership with the Thabo Foundation, hosted African intellectuals at a colloquium themed 'Mbeki@70'. The essays presented there were collected and edited into this book. The Colloquium sought to address the matter of Afrocentricity in the process of knowledge production as a means of responding to Africa's challenges rather than positioning Africans as simply the consumers of pre-packaged information from elsewhere and not Africa.
