This engaging and erudite collection of essays offers fascinating commentaries and critiques of contemporary events as seen by a leading African public intellectual.
Framed around the extraordinary election of President Barack Obama, a member of Africa's rapidly growing new Diasporas in the global North. The book provides insightful reflections on the changing dynamics of African Diaspora histories and politics, the complex relations between Africa and its Diasporas.
Written with elegance and passion, the thread that runs through all these fascinating essays is the question of Africa's place in the world and the place of the world in Africa, a challenge in which the Diaspora has a crucial role to play.
