Being Black Not Much Has Changed: Then, Now and the Way Forward
by Sally S. Eko
Being Black Not Much Has Changed: Then, Now and the Way Forward is about the movement of black people from Africa to North and South America, their enslavement, emancipation and their great contribution to their new home. The colonization of Africa, struggles for independence, military coups, the economy, problems and how black people can move forward by developing Africa to make the continent a source of pride for black people are all discussed.
Black people have contributed a lot to the progress of the world in many ways. Their free labor contributed to the development of the United States of America. Their ingenuity and productivity resulted in the creation and invention of many things we use today.
This book wants to bring to light the goodness in black people because the world only acknowledges few among them; too many that have contributed positively to the world are forgotten.
