Wretched Africans
Date and Time: Thursday, 07th April 2016, 6.00 pm
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Admission: free

A Study of Rabai and Freretown Slave Settlements By Joe Khamisi.

No one in the history of humankind has suffered the indignity, abuse, and pain of slavery than the African. Unfortunately, the African slave narrative – written mainly by western historians and missionaries – has been contemptibly distorted to portray Europeans as the gallant saviours, the notorious slave traders as swaggering heroes.

The Wretched Africans peels off what is beneath the Arab slave trade, unravels the racism and abuse meted against Africans by European explorers and missionaries, and lays bare the heroism and resilience of the African captives.

The book will be launched in the form of a moderated panel discussion with Joe Khamisi, Dr. Mshai Mwangola, Edgar Manasseh and Khainga O’Okwemba.
