The tapestry of the splendour of African history has but received disproportionate attention in international scholarship on the African continent. These scholarships contrived erroneous beliefs that the history of Africa resided in utter darkness. This misleading historicity, though increasingly losing currency, has negatively influenced scholarship on the origin and philosophy of human rights prompting western dominance in both the discourse and attribution of the evolution and growth of the movement of human rights. This book forms a critical discourse by venturing to examine the concept and manifestations of human rights from an African philosophic perspective in a bid to reveal the excellent inputs from a continent once equated with intellectual penury. Whilst this work could prove a useful tool for both human right scholars/academics and human rights activists especially in Africa who continue to be confronted with remarks of modern notions of human rights being Eurocentric, it could further enrich and reinforce the universality of the applicability of human rights.
