Edward Wilmot Blyden and the Racial Nationalist Imagination is a serious research of 1 of the main prolific and an expert black-world intellectuals of the 19th and early 20th centuries. targeting his writings, it exhibits the contradictions, ambiguities, complexities, and paradoxes in Blyden's robust black racial nationalism. Blyden was once a modernist who known as upon African americans to "uplift" Africa; but he used to be a defender of Africa's tradition and customs. He used to be the main subtle critic of Eurocentrism; but he used to be an avid Anglophile. He used to be a Protestant who admiredIslam's "civilizing" function in Africa. Blyden used to be the 1st black highbrow to suggest for the symbiosis of Africa's "triple heritage": indigenous, Islamic, and Western. His voluminous writings laidthe foundation for probably the most very important rules of African and black diasporic thinkers of the 20 th century, together with Frantz Fanon, Amilcar Cabral, Chiekh Anta Diop, Leopold Sedar Senghor,Aimé Césaire, and Walter Rodney.

even though Blyden is frequently ignored within the historical past of recent black idea, during this e-book, Teshale Tibebu brings him out of oblivion and engages the reader in anextended, systematic assessment of his written works.
