Mufuka, K. Nyamayaro, Voice of Truths Staff, Voice of Truths Staff


This book is powerful, provocative, and profound. It forces the reader to pay attention to its contents. Voice of Truths Publishing Company wishes to challenge the Eurocentric view of World History with well-documented essays. Dr. Mufuka, in these well-thought out essays has done just that. He begins by showing the reader that West African slaves, who came to the United States, started rice and cotton plantations in the Carolinas and Virginia were descendants of the civilizations of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai. They had a rich tradition in ironwork, textile manufacturing, wet "rice" agriculture, and knew a hundred usages for salt, both in medicine and culinary. This knowledge was indispensable for the success of the new colonies. It is in his treatment of the Zulu War, the Education and Development in Africa, that he excels. Compiling fact after fact, he mercilessly exposes the colonial intent to educate the African for service rather than for political participation in home rule. With equal vigor, he shows that modern development projects are usually at variances with African values or social order. the result has been unmitigated failure and persistent poverty. Dr. Mufuka is well qualified to interpret World History. He was educated at St. Andrews University in Scotland, England and Queens University in Canada.earning his Ph.D. ..He has won the Reuters International Award for best foreign correspondent for African newspapers twice. As such, he writes clearly and more concise than most academic scholars, and he knows how to keep his readers enthralled. This work is the result of twenty-five years of teaching and research. In 1991, I was in a mid-life crisis when I first listened to Dr. Mufuka's lectures. Immediately, I concluded that I must devote my life to challenging the Eurocentric views of World History and Culture by publishing well-documented materials from an Afrocentric perspective." - Robert L. Miller, Jr., Publisher - Voice of Truths Publishing Company.Mufuka, K.
