Basil Davidson wrote so passionately about Africa it was assumed he
was an African, writes Cameron Duodu, paying tribute to the late
historian, whose work ‘enriched the world's understanding of Africa’.
Davidson was ‘not only an inspiration to progressives inside academia,
but was an important resource for African leaders themselves’, says
Duodu, at a time when the majority of ‘histories’ depicted Africa as
‘a land full of barbarous peoples “until the white man came”’.
