African Century is a term that is used to express belief or hope that the 21st century will bring peace, prosperity and cultural revival to Africa, or is used to draw attention to the need for such an evolution. Among those who have used it in this way 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]
