50 African Pioneers Since 1880

Every achievement should be celebrated regardless of where and when it was made. This illustrated and bilingual book, for all ages, presents to readers the stories of 25 African women and 25 African men who, as the first in their respective fields, achieved feats hitherto unattainable on the African continent. First Doctor? First lawyer? First Nobel prize? First IT engineer? It’s all in there. Who were they? Where did they come from?
