The Upward Road

Sir: The events in Africa today [March 13] are not a new chapter in human history, and any attempts to depict them as such are unjustified, egoistical and malicious. Why should Africa be expected to possess a magic wand that the rest of the world never had?

Africa is only a fellow traveler on the road that points toward man's ideals. On this road—which transcends continental, political, racial, tribal and ethnic boundaries—both human virtue and wickedness are never far apart.

ERNEST A. MULOKOZI (Tanganyikan) Kingston, R. I.
