Summary This book is a dynamic discussion of how Africa shapes world events today. Although Africa is often portrayed as a remove and impoverished area, remembered for the suffering of its people, it has played an important role in recent history and will continue to play a significant role in the future of America. Tukufu Zuberi weaves interview excerpts and stories from many Africans he has met-from refugees to heads of state-into a larger narrative that takes readers through key events in African history and shows their importance today.
