'There are two answers to things they will teach you about your land: the real answer and the answer you give in school to pass…They will teach you that a white man called Mungo Park discovered River Niger. That is rubbish. Our people fished in the Niger long before Mungo Park's grandfather was born. But in your exam, write that it was Mungo Park.'
Half of a Yellow Sun (p.11) By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
