The Power of Story: Global Myths on the Origins and Character of Black People |Mary Nyambura Muchiri
Published by BookTrail Publishing, my main purpose of writing was not to solve all the problems of racial discrimination, but rather to introduce some historical reasons why it came about, how it has been systematically perpetuated, and how we might find some solutions by honestly bursting the basic myths that have been used to justify racism in its many and subtle forms.
The book is currently available on eBook and Paperback on major online bookstores.
