A Professor of African Literature, Al-Bishak, who released his latest work, Black Papyrus: Global Origins of Writing and Written Literature Traced to Black Africa“, has continued to expand the readership reach of the book by making presentations to leading players in the literary world.
Last December, the lecturer with the Federal University of Lafia, Nasarawa State, presented the 50-year researched book to the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Shehu Abdul Rahman in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital.
He recently performed a similar act when he visited the Secretary General, Pan-African Writers’ Association, Dr Wale Okediran, for distribution to 54 African countries.
The book, sponsored by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, was also presented to the President of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA), Mr Camillus Ukah, who received copies for each of ANA’s 37 branches in the state capitals and the Federal Capital Territory.
The author had early said that copies of his latest world would be “sent to all African countries through the Pan-African Writers Association to spread the word about the ingenious status of the black African as the pioneer of writing, written literature and formal education in the world”.
A Member of the Order of the Niger, Al-Bishak is not only an academic, he came into national consciousness as a journalist, newspaper columnist and notable editorial consultant, working with The Guardian, Daily Times and New Nigerian, among other news publications.
A quintessential critic and talented creative writer, he made his marks in the academic community and was appointed a Professor of African Literature with speciality in Literary Egyptology by the Federal University of Lafia three years ago.
His creative and scholarly worksworks include a literary theory, Leoparditude.
