"A celebratory, affirmative vision of pan-African unity . . . will have broad relevance and personal meaning for every student of the African diaspora."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr.In this deeply felt, bridge-building book, Philippe Wamba, the son of an African American mother and a Congolese father, uses his fascinating personal background as a lens through which to view three centuries of shared history between Africans and African Americans. It is at once a vividly detailed memoir and a richly researched work of scholarship that deftly weaves accounts of Wamba's multinational childhood in Boston, Massachusetts, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, with enlightening analyses of history, music, literature, religion, and politics. Whether writing about his dissident father's imprisonment by Zaire's dictator Mobutu Sese Seko or discussing Martin Luther King, Jr., and Michael Jackson, Wamba examines the complexity of relationships within the international black community and tackles misperceptions on both sides of the ocean. "Wamba writes with the perception of a psychologist and the perspective of an historian . . . persuasive."--Mark Mathabane, The Washington Post Book World
