AFRICA IN HISTORY

We in Radio Shrine intend to share with our viewers in this column dubbed ‘Africa in History’, our deep drinking from the rivers of African history. Like Cheikh Anta Diop in his book Civilization or Barbarism, 1981: “For us, the return to Egypt in all domains is a primordial condition to reconcile African civilization with history, to be able to build a corpus of modern human sciences, to renew African culture. Far from delectation with the past, a look towards ancient Egypt is the best way to conceive and build our cultural future. Egypt will play in a newly thought African culture, the same role the ancient Greco-Latin played in Western Culture”.
