African century is the belief or hope that the 21st century will bring peace, prosperity and cultural revival to Africa. Among those who have spoken of an African century are South African politicians Thabo Mbeki[1][2] and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma,[3] Chevron CEO David J. O'Reilly,[4] US Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill[5] and celebrity campaigner Bono.[5] It has also inspired a radical policy journal - African Century Journal founded in 1999.[6]
