4:17 pm
with a book in africa with our view and. south african historian no longer hopes to prepare . for the future by teaching her the history of why people. own experience as an african that the one thing that africans value that has and put them through centuries of pain is knowing where they are and where they come from. a university professor discovered that african history books written for kids almost exclusively focused on ancient egypt she wanted to paint a broader picture about the continent. she wants to cover everything from ancient history to more contemporary independence movement. when africans are clear about the history and about where they come from and the origins and their different mythologies we do way better. as kids in school we do way better as students at

4:19 pm
been cruel to one another everywhere throughout history. this is an important misses in a country like south africa where christmas of its colonial past be found everywhere . no longer stresses that this alternative perspective was sorely missed and up until now even in schools. like those in the 3rd. school have something to be proud of i want to know more. if my. no one in this book embraces african history and culture plus it covers issues ranging from the rise of civilizations to slavery colonialism struggles for independence and famous african. it's really. about culture. and choice because you don't have.
4:20 pm
