    mobi ´ Africas Tarnished Name ó Paperback ☆ chinua achebe Africas Tarnished NameAchebe is an angry man and in everything he writes he is full of rage and frustration at a world that denies the voice of his brothers This passion is persuasive and powerful his voice is commandingHe doesn’t play around with words instead preferring to cut straight towards the harsh truth of reality Africa is dramatically unrepresented in Western media literature and politics White men and European leaders gather to discuss the economic future of Africa; they put into place action plans that seek to alter the future of the continent The ideas are cold and will cause suffering to the people a fact the white man cares not for Africa is people Simple words but when delivered
