A Triple Heritage written and presented by ALI A . MAZRUl
1: The Nature of a Continent Africa is a continent of surprises today at least as much as to early explorers. For centuries it evolved its own civilizations and lifestyles, its own ways of running its own affairs. Then came two outside influences, Islam and the West. Nearly half of Africa's population of 500 million is Muslim. Many more bear the mark of 100 years of European colonisation. Presenter
All Mazrui calls this mix Africa's 'triple heritage' - it is at the centre of this nine-part series. As an African and a Muslim who grew up in Kenya under colonial rule, Mazrui offers above all, an insider's view of the continent, and what is more, that of an insider who is himself 'a walking example of the triple heritage'.
