Abstract

This paper examines the intersection between history, colonialism, neoliberalism, postcolonialism and the African body in the context of sport, in an attempt to promote alternative ways of seeing which might move from an ‘Orientalist’ view to one of genuine mutual exchange. In order to get to that point, however, the themes outlined above are unpacked and it is demonstrated how they have worked to create and sustain economic inequality as well as inequitable social interaction whereby the African body is always constructed as ‘Other’ and viewed as ‘lesser than’ bodies of the Global North, a corporeal political economy of perpetual inequity.
