Providing a Picture to Africa

Subject

Views of Africa

Description

The Last Journals of David Livingstone provides a detailed account of the interior of Africa and the lives of those that live there. The image I chose in the book provides some insight into the minds of Europeans regarding the slave trade in Africa and how some feel about it. Livingstone comments that the horrors of slavery keep him up at night. The entire work informs the people of Britain that those living in Africa are not savages. On the contrary, they have very complicated social structures present and have lives of their own. The book helps to dispel the stereotype that all Africans are savages, thousands of years behind Europeans.
