This chapter discusses Tooy's views about Africa. It explains that Tooy considers Africa as a land of men's men and the place where those who prepared themselves properly could take off and soar like eagles. His first remembered forebears are those who experienced the Middle Passage, enslaved Africans from Dahomey and Loango who arrived with their magical powers in their pouches.
