Origin and development of African historiography by


Olofu Godwin Ogbeche, Ejim JA, Akogwu CE

This work takes a look at the origin and development of African historiography, with the view to bring out its meaning and nature, as well as those factors that influenced its emergence and development. The study asserts that, the nature, emergence and development of African history and historiography were generally influenced by specific historical conditions. Prominent among them was the rise of African Nationalism that characterized the period after the 2nd World War. The study established that, both African history and African historiography went through progressive re-definition in the period, therefore debunked the believed among Europeans and Euro-centric historians that Africa, south of the Sahara, has no history.
