Description

As democratic movements break out around the world, a generation of young Africans fight to rid their countries of governments plagued by corruption, nepotism and economic devastation. This is an essay on the history of colonialism in Cameroon and the African continent. Past and present are intertwined in the study of the violent colonial past and unbearable autocratic present. The written word is seen as a tool for freedom, showing the publishing and media industries in Cameroon today. It also unveils the rich traditions of pre-colonial literature.
