Give Africa’s children a place of pride.
Join the movement to stem the destructive cycle of war, poverty, famine, hunger, pandemic, dilapidated infrastructure; abysmal basic utilities and health services, political and economic instability.
Africa Rising: Shedding Black Africa’s Burden is an introspective insider perspective about the burdens that have thwarted progress in Sub-Saharan Africa. Born and raised in Sub-Saharan Africa, Dr. David Ogula reflects on the images and perceptions that have defined Africa for centuries. Images of war, famine, hunger, pandemic, dilapidated infrastructure; abysmal basic utilities and health services, malnourished children, political and economic instability, capture the imagination of the world. Hunted by these images and the urgent need to lead the way toward a brighter future for African children, Dr. Ogula challenges black Africans to take charge of their own development, solve their problems and take control of their own lives and destiny. This is the challenge that present and future generations of Africans must tackle and overcome.
Shedding Black Africa's Burden is available for purchase in both print and ebook formats.
