To mark this year’s Africa day, we bring you, with delight, these wonderful quotes from African heroes. 

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”- Nelson Mandela

“Africa is a huge continent with diversity of cultures and languages. Africa is not simple-often people want to simplify it, generalize it, stereotype its people, but Africa is very complex. 

The last five hundred years of European contact with Africa produced a body of literature that presented Africa in a very bad light and now the time has come for Africans to tel their own stories.”- Chinua Achebe

Happy Africa day.
