 Africanism was a pan-Africanist ideology arising in Burkina Faso during the late 2040s and early 2050s. It had its ideological roots in [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Thomas_Sankara|Sankaraism]]. Ever since Thomas Sankara'​s radical four-year rule of what was then Upper Volta (he renamed the nation Burkina Faso) in the early 1980s, his ideas had held currency with Burkinabés. Sankara'​s principles of African economic independence,​ women'​s equality, freedom from slavery and serfdom, education and literacy had been adopted by many opposition groups in Burkina Faso during the 60 years before they rose again in the uglier garb of Africanism. Africanism was a pan-Africanist ideology arising in Burkina Faso during the late 2040s and early 2050s.
