Dear All,

This is going to be a blog about African legends, African problems, African diaspora, African history, and history of other countries and continents.  For this blog, I will mostly use pictures, videos-documentaries, and audios.  I have created this blog because I am curious, I love history, and particularly history of the African continent.  I have found that many of my African friends, young or old, are like me and are not well-acquainted with their history… since most of it is not written.  I have learned a lot these days, and would like to share with others what I have found.  I will also provide you with informational links you could check if you are interested in learning more about the topic of the day.

I do not claim to know the absolute truth or that these videos say the absolute truth, but I would like you to think… and ask yourselves questions, and be curious… History is history, sometimes good and great, and other times ugly and bitter… You cannot erase the bad, you can only learn from it.  History is like a compass: it gives a sense of direction to future generations.  Some of these videos will be in French, others in English, Spanish, and even Portuguese.  As you know, French, English, Spanish, and Portuguese are official languages in many countries of Africa.

Feel free to comment if you find good information that could be shared with others.  I will try to post as many as I can find… and would create interesting topics that could be discussed.

  2. I saw a video interview of Amilcar Cabral, the Cape Verdean freedom fighter on your channel. I am producing a documentary about Cape Verdeans in California and would like permission to use about 5 seconds of that interview in my film.

    Dear Dr. Y: so glad you established this blog. I’ve been telling U.S. Postal Service execs, managers, craft employees, & as many others as I can about Sankore University in Timbuktu for over 20 years. If our children know their history, no one can brainwash them into believing they’re nobodies. Thank you, thank you, thank you, & keep up the good work.

    I just discovered your delightful website while searching for the origin of the country name Burkina Faso. Your Great Laughter page is great fun. I’m gradually reading other areas, and very much appreciate the insight into African history and peoples. I know nothing about all this. Thank you for sharing your love of your own lands.
