  • Black resistance and identity

    Fight for Freedom: Black Resistance and Identity


    Although there have been a number of studies on Black resistance, very few of these have focused exclusively on such a wide range of resistance campaigns and
    strategies within a single volume. One of the central arguments of this study is that from as early as the sixteenth century when Europeans attempted to systematically exploit Africans, Black people have engaged in a variety of organized and sustained resistance campaigns to assert their independence and identity. This book examines some of the different strategies employed by Black people in Africa and the Diaspora in response to European domination and exploitation. Drawing upon research from scholars based at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana and the University of the West Indies, Jamaica, this collection of original essays, covers the academic disciplines of African and Caribbean history, literature, politics, and psychology. Despite these different approaches, the consistent theme throughout centers on the strategies employed by Black people to resist European domination and oppression, by fighting for their freedom at every possible opportunity, whether they were in Africa, Britain, or the Caribbean.

  • Memories from an African Childhood


    Memories from an African Childhood is a book comprised of the author’s memories around his life growing up in Tanzania. Initially intended as a private journal for the author and his family, it became evident that the emotions that span his childhood are not unique to growing up in Africa. Hence the author decided to share his trip down memory lane hoping that his recollections would help the reader recall their own story. It is the author’s aspiration that this book can help illustrate that despite all the forces that are determined to pit people against each other (religious, economic, political, cultural etc.), we are all more similar than we think. We all experience joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain – and our childhood shapes us to become the people we are.
    What realizations will the reader discover about themselves? How has YOUR story made you who you are?

  • The Invisible Black Brain


    On 4th August 2021, several thousand protesters marched in Ghana’s capital Accra under the slogan “Fix The Country”. Dressed in red and black, they chanted patriotic songs and waved placards declaring several statements.
    During these periods I asked myself, “who are they referring to fix the country? Was the country already a fixed one that demands restoration?” After careful thought, I decided to write this book to expound on what needs to be fixed first.
    Ghana is great, and Africa is great. We have an even still have all it takes to be the greatest continent in this world. From our culture and traditions, natural resources, great talents, and historical background, we can see that nature blessed us freely. We were endowed with innate greatness. But sadly, there was a great thing absent, a great thing. Something was not right with the people and so upon all that we were gifted with, we couldn’t make anything worthwhile from them. Something was absent: the right mentality, the right mind, the white mind.
    As an African, I strongly believe it’s about time we have to realize and understand certain things; they might not sound good or sweet to our ears, but if we all can testify within us that what has been said is very true of us, then, I believe we are a step closer to making ourselves a better people. We need to pause, find the things in us that draws us back, and get rid of them other than trying to justify ourselves as better or perfect people.
    This book is meant to make us conscious of what it means to have a black mind and how it, in the long run, affects national development and our own progress. As a weak student in mathematics, if you are able to realize you are weak in mathematics, you will think of finding out who is better than you in mathematics; then you will definitely want to know why it is so. Accepting that you are weak and not good like the other good student is the first step to being better. You then have to find out what makes him better than you: is it because he spends more hours studying and solving more questions in mathematics? Is it because he makes a lot of notes in class? Or is it because he pays abrupt attention during mathematics class? After knowing what makes the difference, you are then just a step away to being like him!!!
    We have to realize we are a setback as compared to those highly developed nations. We have to realize they are far better than us in terms of technological advancement, national development, a mature and sophisticated economy, GDP, diverse industrial and service sectors, and many others. This is a fact we all know. If then, we need to find out why it is so. And that is all the purpose of this book: to make us realize and accept that we have to work on ourselves as individuals, as a family, as a society, as a nation and as a continent.
    This book is not meant to criticize or discriminate against Blacks, but to talk about what it means to have a ‘black’ mentality, NOT a Black skin. Having a black mindset is not only associated with Black people or Africans, no! You can be a person with a White skin but having black mentality and vice versa. The tone of the writer might sound aggressive but not for that purpose. The main purpose of this book is to expound on how some people think and how it in the long run affects them in terms of everything they do. This book is never meant to instigate racism; I personally don’t assent to racism; each person is equally important. Every human being is important and should be treated equally and fairly, irrespective of color, race, religion, beliefs, and roots. There isn’t any form of racism in sport and see how beautiful it is. Racism is never a good thing.
    After reading you will get to know what it means to have a black mentality or how a black minded person thinks and live their life. The Black Mind is yet to be unfold.
