Pan-African Culture of Resistance: A History of Liberation Struggles in Africa and the Diaspora (Global Publications, 2002). Focusing on culture contacts and their effects, Ohadike defines the Pan-African culture of resistance as a pattern of behavior and a cultural heritage that is shared by all black people. He discusses how the history of black people in Africa was connected to the history of black people in the Americas and how black people as a whole waged a five hundred-year war against European domination. Ohadike explains that the struggle for black liberation began on European-owned slave ships during the Atlantic crossing and continued on the plantations and maroon settlements, giving rise to a Pan-African culture of resistance in the Americas.
