This article introduces the series, “Reclaiming Africa’s Early Post- Independence History,'' from Post-Colonialisms Today. It explores the policies and thinking of African governments in the early post-independence period, and the lessons for today’s struggles for political and economic agency on the continent. This project was ultimately undercut by Northern nations, including the former colonizers, who worked to disrupt African governments’ political and economic agency to break out of their subordinate place in the global economic order.
