InformAfrica – In the e-Book “Africa un-slaved; Volume I: The Chains of Modern-day African Slavery and The Steps to Our Liberation”, author Teekay Akin (Akinyemi Adeseye) poignantly illustrates the pervasive cause for the disenfranchisement and oppression of Africans throughout the world.
The following excerpt was was culled from the book’s Foreword:
At the foundation of African oppression is the ubiquitous mental colonization that permeates each generation cloaked in the illusion of the ―possibility of prosperity. Much of what is expressed in this work is the illusive and deleterious function of religion, specifically that of foreign religion. Resonating throughout ”Africa un-slaved is the admonishment of Africans to a rise from their mental and physical dependency on that which has and continues to oppress the masses. The author calls for the dismantling of religious idealism that only seeks to further subdue under the guise of false hope. ”Africa un-slaved begs the question ―Why can’t we break free from this mentality that has got us down this destructive road?
In answering this question the author shatters these imagined precepts of false hope through political and religious faith and repositions this hope only through revolutionary acts of reason and realism. As Akin proclaims, ―We have taken all those chains of our slavery and burdens and tied them firmly around our own necks. Therefore the realism of true freedom can only be actualized through removing the mental shackles and creating an insurrection against the proverbially corrupt slave masters in both political and religious arenas.
This work leaves the reader in a constant position of questioning their state of oppression and their role in sustaining it for themselves and others. It addresses how the continual acceptance of corruption, religious idealism, and foreign standards lead to generational propagation of African mental colonization. “Africa un-slaved; Volume I: The Chains of Modern-day African Slavery and The Steps to Our Liberation” blatantly presents the tools that have been utilized to redefine and further propel a nuanced form of slavery. The author depicts how these tools; both overtly and covertly are not only embraced but also passed down by those who they are intended to confound.
