Africa: Where did we go Wrong? is a book that takes a ‘Pan-Africanist Marxist’ approach, in an attempt to unite the continent against foreign elements that may threaten the political, social and economic factors. It is in fact ‘A Book for the Liberation of Africa, Now.
It is a historical and political piece that examines where Africa went wrong throughout her
history and if in fact, she deserved and deserves to be put through the inhumane genocide
through European hands (particularly), in the course of her history; slavery to present day. It
takes its cue from great Pan-African works, ideas, stands, philosophy; Marxism and
Anti-Imperialism works of Marcus Garvey, W.E.B. Du Bois’, Walter Rodney, Lumumba and
Sekou Toure, Frantz Fanon, Basil Davidson, and Kwame Nkrumah. It critically discusses the
history of the continent; from Ancient Africa to Slavery and Slave trade, Colonialism and
Post-colonial times and vindicates the African while completely condemning the malicious,
inhumane, heartless, vicious, indignant, outrageous and unapologetic western policies and
history in the continent. It exposes the cruelty of Slavers, Colonizers and Post-Independence
Capitalist States for their exploitation of Africa and propaganda-philosophy. The
master-minders of chaos and supporters of bad governance who turn around to shout
that "Everything-Africa is ‘Bad' News".
The book is divided into 13 chapters. The first chapter begins with a key question that eludes to the scope of our history; “Who named us Africa?” “Is Being ‘Black’ a crime against humanity?” and concludes in chapter 13; going back to ‘Our’ Roots: Being African Again. A clarion call and a radical request to Africans to Unite now or We Perish forever’. Eminent is "A declaration of ‘My Solemn Oath to My Great Africa"; to push for ''A United States of Africa in Our Life time''.
