Pauulu Kamarakafego, Indigenous Technology, and Global Black Power

All of Africa Is On My Back [sic]: Pauulu Kamarakafego, Indigenous Technology and the Global Black Power is a manuscript about the late Pauulu Roosevelt Browne Kamarakafego, who was a significant yet largely unheralded Black Power and Pan-Africanist organizer from Bermuda. Kamarakafego was also an internationally renowned ecological engineer, and UNESCO consultant on rural development, renewable energy and global sustainability. All of Africa aims to make sense of his remarkable ability to fuse his political world-views with his technical expertise, and to utilize indigenous technology in the service of Black Power, Pan-Africanism and decolonization. It offers a global narrative of Black Power that spans the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia and the Pacific. By highlighting how diverse African Diasporic communities engaged Black Power, this project speaks to NEH's Bridging Cultures Initiative.
