by Roland Oliver , Ph.D. Reader in African History In the University of London
Dr. Oliver believes that in southern Africa the origins of true nationalism are to be found in African Christian movements; and that today, more than ever, the distinction between the things that are God's and the things that are Caesar's is, to the black Christian, academic and unreal.
His talk is occasioned by Independent
African, a biography of John Chilembwe , by George Shepperson and Tom Price.
