Chimamanda Adichie: On Europe's own story of its colonial history.

Chimimanda Adichie tells us her impressions of Europe from her viewpoint, that  of someone from Africa who isn't familiar with Europe. She speaks about her reception in different European countries. She tells us how in her opinion Europe would like to erase their actual colonial history. I think she makes her point very clearly. I think Africans all over the world can relate on some level to that idea of European  erasure of our history, wherever in the world we find ourselves. Listen for yourself and see if her talk doesn't make you want to know even more about the complete history of Africa as well as the truth about the part that Europe played in the present day state of Africa and African people at home and abroad.
