The Dark and Bright Continent: Africa in the Changing World
THE DARK & BRIGHT CONTINENT: AFRICA IN THE CHANGING WORLD, has been described as one of the best written books about Africa by an African. The book kicks off with the Rhythms of Life; then it moves on to dissect the Ancient African Politics & Beliefs, Slavery & Colonization, Political, & Economic Independence of Africa. The reader is juxtaposed with the Coup D'Etat in Africa; he is taken from Rip Van Winkle as Africa, to Africa & the World; from Foreign Media & Africa to the Exogenous Use of Africans. It reaches its climax with The Future of Africa, which challenges everyone, & knocks on the conscience of the world. Said Dr. Alphine Jefferson, Professor of History & Director of African-American Studies at SMU, "....I have learned a lot from this book. If I am to teach an advanced course in African History, I will use it."
