We must tell our own stories. The competing narratives of what Africans at home and in the Diaspors are and what they can accomplish may conflict. Not all conflict is bad! We must be true to our own stories even when others disagree. But shall we relinquish our truth because some may not want it told? Be proud! No expert gives up his position only to allow another "expert" to be right!

Neto first became known in 1948, when he published a volume of poems inLuanda and joined a national cultural movement that was aimed at “rediscovering” indigenous Angolanculture (similar to the Negritude movement of the French-speaking African countries). His first of many arrests for political activities came shortly thereafter in Lisbon, where he had gone to study medicine. After several protests & arrests as well as becoming a medical doctor & a distinguished poet, Neto was elected the first president of #Angola in 1975.
See a sample of his poetry below:
NIGHT By Neto I live in the dark quarters of the world without light and life. I fumbled through the streets leaning on my dreams stumbling on slavery to my desire to be.
Slave quarters worlds of misery dark quarters.
Where the wills were diluted and the men were confused with things.
I walk in unknown streets without tripping Streets soaked in with mystical light and the terror arm of ghosts.
A staple of the #African diet, Plantain may seem like a ubiquitous unimportant vegetable. But you would be wrong my friend! See now what is here... "studies show both bananas and plantains help boost the immune system, regulate digestion and are potassium-rich foods (www.draxe.com). Plantain can help regulate blood sugar levels which is critical in humans. If you have BP (high blood pressure) this is the food to eat!
