Reclaiming African History

Reclaiming African History

US$ 16.99
The thought-provoking essays in this volume show that it is possible to reconnect the histories of those who have been disconnected in Africa: shack dwellers, the poor, and the dispossessed. This analysis of African history demonstrates how people have been forced into looking at their own histories through a shattered mirror, deliberately and forcefully crushed so as to render the exercise impossible, and argues that history could be written in a way that would help break the mold and free it from being a hostage, consciously and unconsciously, to European and U.S. historical intellectual frameworks. It enables a reconnection to humanity¬ónot just for the sake of Africa, but for the sake of those who did everything to bury African history.
