"Conhecer o passado para entender o presente e se preparar pro presente." #Repost @unesco (@get_repost)
The History of Africa, like the history of humankind as a whole, is really the story of an awakening.
We need thorough understanding of the past to understand the present and prepare for a better future. This is why, since 1964, @UNESCO has been working to shift the context of the History of Africa, freeing it from racial prejudices & promoting an African perspective. Africa’s history told by Africans themselves.
And this is how UNESCO's General History of Africa initiative was born. The result is a unique 8 volumes work. It was the first of its kind to present the entire history of the African continent. And it contributes as well to one key target: passing the values of the History of Africa to the African Youth, priority for UNESCO
