  Négritude (‘blackness’) was a literary movement originated in the 1930s by French-speaking black writers who wanted to reassert the cultural values of Africa in place of colonial, European literary culture. The movement (though not the name) has survived, on the one hand taking in the work of writers like Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka in Africa itself, and on the other inspiring politico-cultural activism like that in the US during the late 1980s, when students and staff in some campuses proclaimed a reluctance to have anything to do with a culture dominated by DWEMs (Dead White European Males).
