Congratulations to @TheDiasporaDiva! bell hooks shared her article Who Stole all the Black Women from Britain? on facebook. A deservedly high accolade for a brilliant and illuminating article and fantastic writer. (We were wondering where the extra 8,000 views had suddenly come from, it was published 3 months ago!)

Always nice to get the stamp of approval from bell hooks!

The Curse of Colonialism, Choice Politics, and Individualism

The communal orientation of pre-colonial African societies; the idea that as communities, including the unborn, the living and the ancestors – We are all one- has been sacrificed at the alter of rapacious individualism, clothed in the misleadingly emancipatory garb of personal ‘choice’.

The real tragedy of colonialism and its subsequent articulations, is the fact that it has largely obliterated our understandings of what it means to be alive, to be human! To understand our interconnectivity to the cosmos, to our fellow (wo)man. To appreciate our own presence, in the future, the past and the present.
