Negritude was a movement of the 1930s by black intellectuals. The negritude movement was especially strong in Francophone colonies in Africa and the Caribbean, and was espoused in the writings of important black Francophone intellectuals like Aimé Césaire and Léopold Senghor. This movement rejected the political, social and paternalistic moral domination of the West and celebrated the contributions of colonised people not only to their own cultures, but to the culture of the colonial powers.
