The Lumumba Generation
African Bourgeoisie and Colonial Distinction in the Belgian Congo
Kultur-, Sozial- und Bildungswissenschaftliche Fakultät
How and why did the Congolese elite turn from loyal intermediaries into opponents of the colonial state? This book seeks to enrich our understanding of the political and cultural processes culminating in the tumultuous decolonization of the Belgian Congo. Focusing on the making of an African bourgeoisie, the book illuminates the so-called évolués’ social worlds, cultural self-representations, daily life and political struggles.
