The Cultural Modernity of H.I.E. Dhlomo
Dhlomo, one of the most outstanding African intellectuals in the New African Movement, engaged the notion of the construction of modernity in South Africa in the first half of the 20th century. His principal concern, following a root tradition of the Xhosa Intellectuals of the 19th century, was with the problem of how to transform European, Christian-informed modernity into a true African modernism that embraced the powerful political currents of Ethiopianism, Pan-Africanism, the ANC, New Africanism and Shembeism. This book considers his influence.
