The African predicament seems so pervading that, to most people, it is unthinkable to conceive of anything great coming out of the continent. There seems to exist a general agreement that in Africa, “the inherent tendency to the negative has already been realized”l as “much of Africa is in a precarious state.”> Thus, Africans are always discussed as the black sheep of the human species. There is already enough literature that deals with the so-called problems of the African people. There are also, library-filled suggestions-ranging from the utopian to the practical-about how to counter the problems, each contending for attention. So why bother ourselves with duplication of efforts? We rather look into the future with the tools presented by analyzing the present. This is actually what this paper intends to do. In the main, we are not denying that, “Africa is in crisis.”3 This paper aims to point out that despite the negative assumptions and presuppositions-scientific as they are-we have about Africa, there is an unfolding of independent history. The nature of events is pointing towards the emergence of a dominant world civilization in Africa. Indeed, this civilization is in the future, though the present holds the key to it.
