Editors Note Western-educated Elites in Kenya, 1900-1963: The African American Factor proposes to conduct a critical examination of the emergence of the American-educated Kenyan elites (the Asomi) and their role in the nationalist movement and eventually their Africanization of the Civil and Private sectors in Kenya. These historic leaders considered the struggle to eliminate racism and shed the yoke of colonialism in Africa, the Caribbean, and America as one fight against one common enemy, the European. Their efforts resulted in the development of the American-educated Asomi in Kenya. I wrote this book to provide a historical perspective on development of western-educated Kenyans. The work is divided into five chapters that consist of an examination of Traditional, Islamic, Missionary, and government education and the subsequent higher education that Kenyan students received in the United States prior to returning to their homeland. It is written for advanced undergraduates, graduated students, and historians, whoalready possess a general knowledge about Kenyan history, but want a deeper understanding of the global influence of the Pan-African movement in the first half of the twentieth century. This text depicts the commonalities that existed between Africans and African-Americans during their fights for independence and equality.
