An African History of Africa - LECTURE


Africa’s history has long been dominated by western narratives of slavery and colonialism, or simply ignored. Join award-winning broadcaster Zeinab Badawi as she sets the record straight and guides us through Africa’s spectacular history from the origins of our species, through ancient civilisations and medieval empires with remarkable queens and kings, to the miseries of conquest and the elation of independence.

Visiting more than thirty African countries to interview historians, anthropologists, archaeologists, and local storytellers, Zeinab Badawi unearths buried histories from across the continent to give Africa its rightful place in our global story told through the voices of Africans themselves.
