The notion of “community” sometimes centers unquestioningly on whatever it is shared by a given group of people without pausing to study the emergence of the uncommon, the disparate or the disjointed among its members. Thus, certain practices underlying distinctiveness, differentiation, and separation are manifested in ways that may become as equally meaningful to them as their common cultural, political, religious, material, and any other structures, values, and characteristics representing them and their community.

The African world is thriving in spite of bearing witness to dystopic and threatening political, social, and cultural change and upheaval.  Society is responding to reassertions of supremacist thought, ethos, insanity, and regression, and there is a caution to avoid a pessimist trap.  In challenging chronophobia, known as a fear of the future, African people continue to maintain and pursue not only optimum liberation but also a technological awareness updated from past ingenuity to present creative consciousness.
