Wonders of the African Crisis

Biko Agozino

Abstract


"Wonders of the African World" was a captivating program to watch. I saw it when the BBC spread the broadcast over six weeks in the UK but it was refreshing to watch it again packed into three days on the PBS here the US. I am disappointed that such a program was shown in the UK without a public debate whereas it has not gone unchallenged here in the US. This is probably a reflection of the fact that people of African descent are better organized in the US where they have successfully struggled for so many programs in Black Studies and Pan African Studies compared to the UK where such programs are almost completely non-existent. However, the lack of debate in the UK may be as a result of the disinterested way the BBC spread the broadcast over six weeks, making it more difficult to follow.
