Africa 101: The Wake Up Call

October 11, 2020

Africa 101: The Wake Up Call the new book written by Ambassador Arikanna is a book about the “hunters” and the “hunted.” The hunters are Africa’s exploiters, slavers, colonizers, and neo-colonizers, and the hunted are the African people who survived against severe odds.

In this book former African Union Ambassador to the United States Her Excellency, Ambassador Arikana Chihombori-Quao, MD. tells the story of Africa in her usual in-your face style. Although she served as a diplomat, she says that being diplomatic about the real issues facing Africa will do us no good.

She warns in this book that the hunt is still ongoing and calls on Africans and people of African descent all over the world to rise up in defense of our beloved continent. Using personal stories, her father’s accounts from the village of Chivu in Zimbabwe, and solid historical references, Her Excellency, Ambassador Arikana Chihombori-Quao, MD. educates, motivates, and challenges the status quo with respect to western countries’ abuse of Africa. This book will challenge you to your core and move you to action.

Africa 101 The Wake Up Call is not only an in depth and informative read about the history, struggles and background of colonialism in Africa but it is also a hopeful, mind-altering business-centered recipe for mining, cultivating and retooling Africa's greatest commodity her people!

This book is a treatise on changing the mindset of those who would continue on the road to destruction at Africa's expense and re educating those towards a new paradigm, one which is full of an abundant life for all by approaching the motherland on her own terms, with respect.

Colonization is over! That will never happen again. But her resources are still being hunted by governments who fail to see the true wealth of the continent. Africa is now positioned to rise above the ashes and mental shackles of post-colonialism and emerge as a world leader in raw and natural resources of land and mind.

Africa 101; The Wake Up Call is an innovative manuscript full of incredible surprises. Not just literary ones, but technological ones as well. At the end of each chapter is a QR (Quick Response) Code where readers can be transported to a video of the author giving more insights with carefully curated and exclusive information for the reader about the chapter they have just concluded.

This is an amazing integration of old-world technology (the book) with new-world innovation (the smartphone) which gives the reader a small glimpse into the mind of the author and her hopes, dreams and future aspirations for the emergence of a new Africa. An Africa who leads in all areas of intellectual, technological and human relations innovation.

Do you hear that? It is the new day of Africa and Africa is calling her children around the world to come home. Her Excellency is on a mission, saying, "I knew there was disrespect for the Africans but I just didn't realize how profound the disrespect was.

All the good work of well intending people has been tarnished by a handful of just a few who disregarded their efforts to the point of being useless. Through the book I am hoping to continue to educate and inform the people to provoke the much-needed conversations about the strategies in place to brainwash black people."

"Sometimes, it's the things we don't think about that have the biggest impact on the world around us. Only through information can we make better decisions. The long-term effect of a single, needlepoint move can deeply impact the future beyond our understanding. And now, what will we do know that we know more?" Steve Kidd, host of Thriving Entrepreneur.

The following paragraphs are from book reviews of Africa 101 The Wake Up Call. 

Review by Marcellus Okenwa "The time is ripe for Africa to wake up. I have been following the lectures and interviews of Her Excellency, Dr Arikina Chihombori on YouTube . Now that a book that gathers all her lectures has been realized, I am indeed grateful. The book is speaking to all Africans irrespective of ethnic, cultural and religious belonging.

The book touches every aspect of Africa, especially the colonial cruelty., starting from the Berlin conference of 1884-1885. As a professor in African legal history, I recommend it to all, even to non africans so as to know with exatitude the wound the Europeans inflicted to Africans by looting all from them." Marcellus Okenwa

As a student of African and African American history, this work has allowed me to expand my knowledge by reinforcing past information and introducing vital new information relating to the African Diaspora, and the Continental Africans. Family, separated by tragedy, abuse, and manipulation of the highest degree! This book is truly a road map for reconnection."

Review by Dr Ambrosia Kweh Mondoa "Dr. Chihombori-Quao’s book Africa 101 is a critical text for those who want to know Africa’s current state of affairs – the consequences of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, colonialism, and the Berlin Conference, the side effects we’re still experiencing today, and the importance of the uplift that can come from pan-Africanism.

The responsibility of this uplift doesn’t come from the continentals alone. The Diaspora & Friends of Africa also need to fully participate in the conversation in order to form the Africa that we wish to see.  Africa 101 is not only a historical textbook dismantling a huge range of stereotypes the international press has generated, it is also a guidebook on how the Diaspora and continentals can heal themselves and each other through the common knowledge of struggle, humanity, and resilience.

Dr. Chihombori Quao’s personal experiences in the African Union and anecdotes from her own life also emphasize the importance of these changes and why they need to come sooner rather than later. Whether you are part of the diaspora, the continent, a history connoisseur, or an outsider looking in, everybody will find something to relate to in this book.

The calls to action, detailed plans and timelines for improvement, and the truths about how colonialism affects Africans and the Diaspora not only in material resources and the economy but also in mind and spirit. Africa 101 is a love letter on how much Africans and the Diaspora have endured, how we can evolve to a better state of mind and society, and the need for total honesty and support of various initiatives.

Dr. Chihombori-Quao’s book is essential for anybody who needs an education on Africa’s history and our place in it. It will be a huge wake-up call for historians and global citizens alike. The facts and hard hitting experiences inside this book will not be found in a typical history book. Her words give me hope that my actions can help in the continent’s progress and I am welcome to do so. For those who need that encouragement, a new home or a second home, or a sense of purpose, this is the book for you. Africans assemble!" Review by Dr Ambrosia Kweh Mondoa
