This chapter argues how these hidden histories of colonial disregard have translated into neglect in postcolonial scholarship—a continuity demonstrating the ways in which genealogies of colonial knowledge continue into the present. The chapter proposes vigilance toward this ongoing influence that has affected understandings of race and nativism into the present and has resulted in the exclusion of many racial minorities from conventional narratives. A more diverse understanding of “being African” is needed in future scholarship.
