    One thought on “The History of Africa: The Quest for Eternal Harmony”

    1. Very interesting book. Lots of information about an often misunderstood continent. Would be worthwhile checking it out.

    2. well put together book about African history done by someone from the region so there is an African perspective in the writing.

    3. I did the concept of an Afro-centric approach to history. It is difficult for me to look past the Afro-centrist voice of an author from the United States. I understand that he is big into the movement, but I still think it’s more difficult then the author describes to distance yourself from a Western perspective when you grow up in the West. Ore historiography is needed.
