African Regeneration

By realizing its own potential, Africa redefined itself and through correct investments accelerated its growth rate; therefore, this statue of African Renaissance is both the symbol of Africa’s promise of a better future for next generations as well as hope, faith and prosperity.

It is an obvious truth that talking about a statue that is 49 meters long is not enough to depict the African Renaissance. However, this statue that was built by the command of the president of Senegal Republic Abdoulaye Wade, carries the reflection of the movement initiated by the people of Africa in order to overcome economic, scientific and cultural hardships.

The statue of African Renaissance is the world’s biggest and most expensive bronze statue, and it symbolizes the movement started primarily within the minds and hearts and then in the daily lives of the radiant faced people of the Dark Continent. The foundation of efforts to put an end to the ill fate of the Dark Continent, which is the cradle of the most ancient civilizations among the history of mankind, dates much longer back than the statue’s construction in 2010.

In the 1946, the first step of this change was taken with the articles written by Cheikh Anta Dıop. When it was 1997, Mbeki articulated his ideas with ease about the reconstruction of social harmony, democracy and economy as well as the restoration of Africa that has a significant role in geo-political issues, through expressing the notions of African Renaissance.

In 1998, a conference which 470 people attended and was about African Renaissance was held in Johannesburg. In 1999, a book was published on the issue and within the same year, an Institute of African Renaissance became established in the city of Pretoria. Institute, which had its other two centers in Gabarone and Botswana, focused on issues concerning science, technology, agriculture, culture, peace, food and health. Its main focus was on the branches of science and technology. Institute’s most important role was to draw African scientists together and motivate them.

Thanks to the studies of Institute of African Renaissance, Africa realized its own power and value and gained momentum for its efforts to become one of the most important economic forces in the next 20 years.

Undoubtedly, the preservation of social values and sincerity in Africa despite of the ethical and social decadal created by the modern world, has a very significant contribution to the Dark Continent Africa’s efforts to change its destiny and become a world power by making correct and successful investments.

By realizing its own potential, Africa redefined itself and through correct investments accelerated its growth rate; therefore, this statue of African Renaissance is both the symbol of Africa’s promise of a better future for next generations as well as hope, faith and prosperity.
