Abstract / Description

In June and July 2008, information and development scholars and practitioners engaged in a sustained email conversation regarding documenting African history. The debate starts with a message sent by Shiraz Durrani to UNESCO on its "Memories of the World Programme". He also circulated this message to a number of people active in the field of Pan Africanism, including Ali Abdul Yekin. This led to the exchange in this paper, which was compiled by Shiraz Durrani.
