This series of 20 programmes is based on a unique project, overseen by
UNESCO known as the GHA: the General History of Africa - Africa’s
history, culture and heritage written and told by Africans themselves.
Zeinab Badawi travels across more than thirty countries in west, east,
central and southern Africa and explores the continent’s history from
the beginning of time to the modern era with the goal to 'set history
straight'. She captures key moments in Africa’s history in her
conversations with Africans from all walks of life including leading
historians from across Africa and she brings alive some of the lesser
known heroes and heroines of the continent’s past. This is a search for
truth and identity - uncovering hidden chapters and perspectives of
Africa’s history and revising distorted interpretations.
