Is the Kitchen Where we Need to Place Africa?

"Fifty years after independence, Africa is still largely a continent picking up crumbs from the master’s table. In Zeleza’s opinion, scholars and intellectuals whose Africanist praxis consists solely in fighting for a place for Africa at that metaphorical table are fighting the wrong battle. 'My brother', Mwalimu Zeleza would say to me, 'we must now insist on Africa’s place in the kitchen where the meal is being prepared. If you get a place at the table after much struggle, the master could still do a few things to Africa’s portion in the kitchen, just before the meal reaches the table in the dining room. The kitchen is where we need to place Africa'" - Pius Adesanmi on a A Day in the Kitchen
