The European colonialism and its slave trade devastated Africa to the core. They rewrote the history of Africa as a barbaric land devoid of any mentionable past. This book dispels the myth and brings forth the rich heritage of Africa's forgotten past and how it fertilised the world culture. It was indeed the consort of world culture. The stars of dark Andromeda up there in the great heaven hang above this tortured world. Despite the crude and cruel motives behind her shame and exposure, her degradation and enchaining, the fire of free Africa is indispensable to the fertilising the universal soul. The author was born in a small ramshackle hamlet of Asembo Bay in Kenya on the shores of Lake Victoria; his grandfather having immigrated to Lamu in 1870. The author grew and was educated amid rampant colonial days in East Africa. His parents moved from place to place in the interior, traversing through gravestores of abandoned hopes as if being centuries removed in time. This was the romantic Africa.
