What is African Culture? I get so many question here in the Western World about African Culture. Is there a thing like African Culture? Let us look beyond the politics, one may argue that there was a common spirit that run through the activities of mainly Africans States. Even this does not hold water. Among Maasai, all a man needed to do was implant a spear in front of his brother's manyatta and he could acceptably have sex with his brother's wife. Trying telling that to an elderly Nyamwezi, Haya, Yoruba, Zulu, Fulani, Kalenjin, etc!! Some African societies were brutal monarchies (Mumias, Baganda), others were based on Africa-style democracy where things like justice were decided in open barazas by councils of elders attended by all villagers. My point is: There is so much wide diversity on the continent, you can't really decide that practice X is African and practice Y is un-African. WE ARE AFRICANS!! WE HAVE A CIVILIZED CULTURE!!
