       Conclusion : African futures 
520    "Epistemic Freedom in Africa is about the struggle for 
       African people to think, theorize, interpret the world and
       write from where they are located, unencumbered by 
       Eurocentrism. The imperial denial of common humanity to 
       some human beings meant that in turn their knowledges and 
       experiences lost their value, their epistemic virtue. Now,
       in the twenty-first century, descendants of enslaved, 
       displaced, colonized, and racialized peoples have entered 
       academies across the world, proclaiming loudly that they 
       are human beings, their lives matter and they were born 
       into valid and legitimate knowledge systems that are 
       capable of helping humanity to transcend the current 
       epistemic and systemic crises. Together, they are engaging
       in diverse struggles for cognitive justice, fighting 
       against the epistemic line which haunts the twenty-first 
       century. The renowned historian and decolonial theorist 
       Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni offers a penetrating and well-
       argued case for centering Africa as a legitimate 
       historical unit of analysis and epistemic site from which 
       to interpret the world, whilst simultaneously making an 
       equally strong argument for globalizing knowledge from 
       Africa so as to attain ecologies of knowledges. This is a 
       dual process of both deprovincializing Africa, and in turn
       provincializing Europe. This landmark work underscores the
       fact that only once the problem of epistemic freedom has 
       been addressed can Africa achieve political, cultural, 
       economic and other freedoms. This groundbreaking new book 
       is accessible to students and scholars across Education, 
       History, Philosophy, Ethics, African Studies, Development 
       Studies, Politics, International Relations, Sociology, 
       Postcolonial and the emerging field of Decolonial Studies.
