About the THEME
The introduction to what is now considered major religions in Africa took place through violent and oppressive means, and to the detriment of existing spiritual knowledge. The many layers of imperialist power were also present in practices of faith. With Afrika’s current challenges in relation to economic development, political self-determination and cultural authenticity, what solutions do religions represent for Afrikan people?
To what extent should religion be expected to voice political standpoints? Clearly, many institutions of faith played an important role in anti-colonial/Apartheid struggle, but are these religions relevant for Afrikans today? Does religion make us better suited to claim liberation? To locate ourselves in Afrika? Should we re-Afrikanize religions or “de-religify” Afrikanness? And, lastly, can we reconstruct our own Afrikan religiosity?
