My Two Centuries in Africa (Book Two)

Carl William Henn

My Two Centuries in Africa is a humorous, affectionate, intimate book about Africa. It's a personal memoir about how a guy from Indiana accidentally spent almost 40 years in Africa and lived to tell about it.

On a deeper level, it's a call to action to Americans and other Westerners to recognize and reject outdated, negative stereotypes about Africa and African people often seen in the media and in movies.

Is Africa really all poverty, war, disease, and corruption, as Western news media tends to portray it? No. Or is it just a big wildlife safari as the travel industry would have you believe? No. It is a lot more.

My Two Centuries in Africa is a new kind of book about Africa. It's a travel book and a memoir. It takes a peek into the daily lives, struggles, and successes of over a billion African people living on the second-largest continent.

It also reveals the emotional roller-coaster life of one lost and lonely man who found love, experienced loss, overcame adversity, and gained a measure of wisdom in the process.

The book contains over 100 color pictures of African countries in which the author lived and worked. As a bonus, the author has included five extensive Spotify playlists of music from different regions of Africa.
