This chapter examines the contributions of Haitian thinkers such as Anténor Firmin and Benito Sylvain in fostering a multilingual, cosmopolitan Pan-Africanism. In 1897, Henry Sylvester Williams (from Trinidad) founded the African Association in London to call attention to the problems of British colonialism in Africa. But after starting a dialogue with Sylvain and hearing of Firmin’s ideas, he expanded the scope of the association to address the plights of all African-descended peoples under colonial hegemony throughout the world, including African Americans in the United States.

Keywords:   Anténor Firmin, Benito Sylvain, Haitian thinkers, anti-imperialism, colonial hegemony
