A New Vision by Bola Ogunkoya

A New Vision by Bola Ogunkoya, is subtitled 'Observations, experiences and hopes for black people in the diaspora.'

It is based upon the author's own life, his own experiences and on his observations of the world about him.

It explores how the black community is viewed and represented in the society of today.

It asks questions that often seem to be unasked, let alone unanswered.

What of the history of those people who were torn from their homelands in Africa?

What about the abolishment of the evil slave trade?

Why are black teenagers represented as failing in our school system when, states Bola Ogunkoya, this is, actually, far removed from the truth?

Why is "black on black violence" still an occurrence today? (Why was it ever an occurrence?)

He also muses on why a country like the USA has produced a black president, a black attorney general and four star black generals, when the UK, a country less riven by the legacy of recent segregation, has not?

It is the intention of Bola Ogunkoya that his book should help people to once again dream and to take ownership of their destiny and to achieve great things in the way their forefathers did.

The book is published by Matador and costs £8.99 in paperback and £2.99 as an e-book.

 It is available for purchase from the That's Books and Entertainment bookshop, powered by Amazon. on the righthand side of the site.
