In the pursuit of happiness, effective communication is vital to understand our counterpart’s point of view. What makes them who they are, what motivates them, and what do they want – in short, their history. We are the way we are because of where we come from, how we were raised, where we went to school, etc. Our history explains why we are where we are right now. Logically, it behooves us to understand the history of our forefathers. History is important. History is foundational. The history of other continents and cultures are widely taught. However, African history is not so prevalent, not even in Africa. Our imperative is to contribute to the exposition of African history and culture in defense of the African perspective.

Millions of Africans have been dispersed from the motherland, creating large overseas communities with people of African origin. This has created a crisis of identity amongst young Africans in diaspora seeking to know their roots. There is a dire need to bridge the gap to ensure that the younger generation understand, appreciate, and can uphold their cultural heritage.
