dc.description.abstract Botho/ubuntu is a philosophy that is as old as humanity itself. In Africa and South Africa it was a philosophy and a way of life for many indigenous tribal groups. It is an African cultural belief that called on individuals to come together and to be more communal in their outlook and, thus, to look out for each other. Although the botho or ubuntu concept became popu¬larised only after the dawn of democracy in South Africa, the concept itself has been lived out by Africans for over millen¬nia. Colonialism, slavery and apartheid introduced materialism and individualism to local populations, which denigrated black identity and imposed on their dignity. The Black Conscious¬ness movement and Black Theology have worked hand in hand since the middle of the 1960s to restore the human dignity of black people in South Africa. en
