I realized as a West African(Liberia) I don't know so much about West African history. I've read Kwame Nkrumah: the Father of African Nationalism, but I'd like more. Looking for a book, a series of books, or just multiple books not in series, that show a picture of Africa in pre-colonial times(as much as possible), colonial times, and modern times.

Writing on witchcraft and its interaction with Christianity also welcome.

Thanks

Oh and I'm not looking for any New-Age writing where the natives are elevated by the weird racist sentiment of the 'noble savage'.

Sorry. Sadly, I can only help with East Africa :(

Honestly I'd like some recommendations on that too. And it'll probably help the thread get going.

Have you picked up the unesco general history of Africa? A great deal of most of the volumes has lots of info on west African cultures
