African Glory – John Coleman De Graft-Johnson
The present study is an attempt to present certain aspects of negro history; and as Africa is today generally regarded as the home of the negro, the present day has taken on, in some respects at least, the character of African History. To attempt a presentation of Negro History, or indeed of African history, in so small a volume is to undertake an impossible task, yet it is a task that must be attempted.
Whether the present political, social and economic changes in the Gold Coast and teh rest of Africa represent the African’s “first real and solid advance toward a higher standard of civilisation” can be judged from the pages of this book. Even though it has not been possible to attempt a systematic history of every corner of the African continent, the material selected has been such as not to leave out too many parts.
