Global African Presence
A substantial part of this book deals with African resistance, particularly during the centuries of slavery. This is something that has been deliberately played down by historians. History books, as a result have always placed undue prominence on the works of those abolitionists, predominantly Europeans, who campaigned for abolition and emancipation. This is an unjustified statement at the expense of the continuous resistance by enslaved Africans themselves. Also, Africans themselves have played a significant role in the abolitionist movement.
