Description: Let us have no illusions: African intellectuals are divided, their theses have limited credit, their responses are tentative, their role is still held very much in contempt and, consequently, their influence is very limited. I believe that the example of Mário Andrade is highly significant in order to understand the current challenges facing African intellectuals, especially for those of us who occupy the Lusophone bloc. I am going to divide this lecture into four parts: I shall start by succinctly presenting the times of Mário Andrade and the generation that preceded him (and which he himself designated as being proto-nationalist). Then, I shall present a critical vision of African nationalism and of its revolutionary proposals. Thereafter, I shall talk about the triumphs and vicissitudes of Negritude and of Pan-Africanism. That will allow us, finally, to analyze the consequences for a country’s citizenry, inclusion and respect of identities; and to conclude with a question about what all of this means to African intellectuals.
