We were beginning to think for ourselves. For East African History, we had to learn about the “explorers” and what routes they took and what they discovered” we spent days learning about the famous Dr. Livingstone and his search for the source of the Nile as we examined his complicated routes in our textbooks. “The Africans already knew where everything was. Livingstone had African porters to carry everything, and the guides showed him where everything was, so he never really discovered anything!” Radha said dramatically, with her impertinent right hand still raised in the air.
Someone else chimed in, “Radha is right, and we spend hours learning all the explorers’ journeys.”
Yogi looked at her and said, “You have a good point, but his journeys are going to be on your exam, so you need to know them.” As a Danish woman, she probably didn’t like the British either.
