ABSTRACT
Quo vadis is a question that presupposes a "whither comest though" and a "whither goest thou", where are you coming from, and where are you going to, dialectically interrelated so as to be able to determine the direction and objective of a path, of a historical process which, in this case, is the liberation and emancipation of Africa, the only kind of future which is worth its name. In this sense, this article examines the future and the hope that still remains - or not - for the maltreated African continent, undertaking a short trans-historic journey in which the reader is taken to Africa's prehistoric and precolonial past and where he is shown the traces of a then still possible, authentic African future. Th is possible future had later become brutally truncated by the invasion of the European colonizer and the nefarious consequences of colonization.
