Product Description

Africans are among the earliest inventors and innovators in world history. Slavery and colonisation, however, forced them to believe the contrary and to think they are an inferior race that has never invented, and cannot invent anything. Some achievements by African people in ancient times are presented and illustrated in this book, attesting that their genius was actually prolific before the Greeks became accustomed to the arts and sciences. Today, African inventors prove that their talent is still at work, and several of their inventions are illustrated in each of the following industries developed in this book: aerospace, agro-processing, automotive, defence, electronics / software, energy and robotics. The manufacturing process of these inventions is also outlined per industry, and scenarios that could incite African inventors to work together to industrialise their continent are also delineated. In a world of negativity, Debunking Myths around African Talent is an absorbing mix of selected historical facts and more recent experiments which attempts to offer positive motivation for the invention of great things that will propel Africa into the industrial and economic arena as a force to be reckoned with. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Rudy Lenda Massamba is the founder of Kumatoo.com, a website that values and celebrates the African genius by displaying contemporary inventions or innovations of African origin. He is also the author of L’Afrique Noire Industrielle, a book in which he shares his vision about Africa’s industrialisation strategies.
