Join us on ‘A Radical Podcast’ for “Anarchism’s African Journey: Past to Present,” where we dive into the rich tapestry of anarchist thought and action across Africa. From the communal lands of traditional societies to the pulsing heart of modern cities, we explore how anarchism has shaped and been shaped by Africa’s unique historical and cultural landscape.
This episode features insights into traditional African societies, modern anarchist movements, the role of anarchism in anti-colonial struggles, and contemporary groups driving change. We also spotlight The Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education and discuss the recent protests in Atlanta against ‘Cop City.’
A special thanks to our listener, Kiwiyogurt66, for their valuable contribution to our exploration of nonviolent struggle tactics.
