Relations Between Africans and African Americans: Misconceptions, Myths and Realities
The author, born and brought up in Africa, looks at relations between Africans and African Americans which have sometimes been described by different observers as "stormy," "complex," "sticky," and even "hostile" as one Nigerian professor put it. This is the third edition which includes information about African immigrants in the United States. Together with foreign students from Africa, they constitute the largest number of continental Africans who interact with African Americans on daily basis.
