In applying an integrative framework of race, Pan-Africanism, and International Security Studies, this thesis links present and historical tensions between Africans and African Americans in the United States to the larger-scale phenomenon of global White hegemony. I argue that liberalism and notions of White citizenry ignite Black interethnic stratification, which thereby impedes possibilities for Black Diasporic unification and uplift. The revival of revolutionary Pan-Africanism thus remains an urgent necessity in the struggle to resist forces of colonial subjugation. As Blood Diamonds who have been displaced across the contours of history, space, and lineage, Africans of the Diaspora must once more reunite for the collective advancement of our livelihood.
