Assorted London Tales About The Africa
In the year 1884, in the German City of Berlin, representatives of European nations gathered around a giant map of Africa for the biggest imperialistic banquet in the history of mankind. Slices of the Dark Continent were served out to satisfy imperial hunger for territories: The Scramble For Africa! Africans got to know about the carve-up of their continent when Europeans turned up on their homelands to claim the territorial possessions as apportioned in Berlin. The process was called The Pacification Of The Natives. Yunhouse is founded by Africans whose personal experience of The Pacification Of The Natives is the Europeanisation of their minds through European education.
