This book has been well researched by the author Joshua Oludare Olusan to showcase the African history, and journey through many stages of development to the present time. It is a thought provoking book which makes one to glimpse the past, present and the potentials for the future. The author has always been concerned for the African dreams that seem continually far away as Africans grapple with poverty, disease and slow socio-political developments, disappearance of indigenous languages and culture. Through this book one can see his great attempt to sensitize all Africans to their rich history and cultural heritage. It is a must to read for both older and young generation. The African Portal is truly the story and the window of the African place in the world of today.
