Asili Yetu Afrika is a compilation of curated images I have collected over my photography career that clearly present the history and heritage of Africa.
It is based on the fact that there is a clear gap in African history. As far as most Africans know, colonial history is majority of our history and slavery is our identity.
This is what has led to an enduring identity crisis and an understated inferiority complex in relation to other people around the world.
This book is part of efforts to explore and an attempt to present elements in our present world that can help us connect with our true history as Africans. It is also an appreciation and a preservation of the gift of the present, progressive times we live in.
