5.0 out of 5 stars Obama For The Congo, March 22, 2007
This selection was for the school library and classrooms of the Internat' Frere Jerry at Mission Pendjua in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It will be used in the schools developed for the former slave tribe, the Batwa's and the former Master tribe, the Ekondas. They are now being schooled together in the mission schools started by an American Missionary doctor, Jerry Galloway MD.

It is the intent of this donor that the recipents are able to see the destiny of the world in change through the American experience. To receive the "audacity of hope" for their civilization and become prepared to be part of the rebirth of their country and continent.

The book gives the true experience of a person affected by race, traditions, split loyalties and claimed by both yet neither race.It is without a doubt inspiration, hopeful and a guide as the Africans come in to their own as individuals and as a society of change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Africa Receives Them Back., March 22, 2007
This book was bought for a missionary in the rain forest of the Democratic Republic of the Congo for his schools. The schools are for the Batwa pygmy students. Their tribe in recent times was dominated by the Ekonda Master tribe. Now they are schooled together. This is for their English and History classes and their library.

The missionary who started the schools through Mission Pendjua, Dr. Jerry Galloway MD, feels this book will be a powerful influence and also give them the insight into the American expression of being an African American.

In a sense, "what comes round goes round" and this book and it's information and hope are being returned to Africa. It is powerful to realize that generations later, these authors and speakers are leading the way for the coming changes of the African continent.
