He is the author of multiple essays on matters ranging from the nature of science, the coronavirus pandemic, racism, tricksters, climate chaos, and unschooling.

"This superb book is a landmark in African studies. The scholars have undertaken the task of telling their own social sciences, humanities, and literary narratives and display a sharp and penetrating engagement with history, politics and culture in a manner that one cannot read these chapters without claiming them to be the gold standard in contemporary thinking." AARON SMITH, TEMPLE UNIVERSITY

"We Will Tell Our Own Story is instructive to scholars and general readers as a method of confronting the manifold problems of misinterpretation and false presentations about African people. I find this work to be extraordinary in conception and execution." SWAHILI SMT, FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF BAHIA, BRAZIL
