*This article is dedicated to my father, Professor Aaron T. Gana, for his many sacrifices to ensure that the struggle for justice, rights, and responsibility in African countries and in black communities all over the world takes place with integrity, passion, and a vigilant commitment to the rule of law. I am thankful to Professor Leroy Vail, who continues to teach me about Africa's potential and who refuses to give up hope for its development. Finally, I am thankful to Kevin Wisner and Aleatra Williams for research assistance and to the University of Oklahoma College of Law for a summer research grant which enabled me to attend the 1995 Law and Society Annual Conference.
