From Pariah to Legend

Papwa Sewgolum “From Pariah to Legend” – A biography about a golfer of colour Papwa Sewgolum, an impoverished caddie fighting the grips of apartheid and becoming a hero by beating the odds and becoming a golfing legend. The impoverished and illiterate descendant of an indentured labourer, Papwa Sewgolum started playing golf at a young age and, with his non-conforming 'wrong arm' grip, he soon became a champion. This book showcases Papwa's remarkable career, and captures both the richness of golf and the soul of a tortured country.

The African Origin of Civilization by Cheikh Anta Diop

A must read book for all those interested in Acient Egypt. It shows you the fact that Acient Egypt was of African origin which many people especially in the west refuse to acknowledge. I wish this book was made available to all schools in Africa.
