This provocative quip by the famed Togolese author to the young economist and philosopher, Professor Felwine Sarr (Senegal) lays out the premise of his recent publication, Afrotopia (2016). Already being described as a manifesto for a new vision of Africa, Sarr's extended essay looks to redefine, renegotiate and realign Africa and African people, advocating for a rejection of the mimicry of the global north, where African culture and traditionalism has become synonymous with backwardness and a lack of progress. Sarr posits that by unpacking the economy, philosophy and culture of the African continent, in its rich multiplicity, there is the possibility for true emancipation, for an authentic African Renaissance.
