An introduction of the New Afrikan Independence Movement (NAIM) focuses on why this movement deserves the attention of scholars and activists. It explains that the NAIM is just one of many attempts all over the world by national and sub-national groupings attempting to govern themselves. In addition, the introduction explains why examining the history of this movement through the “lifestyle politics” of participants is a useful approach for understanding the long term implications of activism. Finally, the introduction provides an overview of the book’s organizations and key arguments.
