This story is about a U.S. born citizen of America, born to an American father and African mother. The man, young Morgan, ends up becoming one of the greatest leaders in Africa. One day the man takes hostage of the American foreign secretary and other world leaders and performs a coup of his neighboring country. He manages to do this after being a guest speaker at the country’s president’s party and uses it to his advantage. Afterwards, Morgan ends up invading more African countries under the nose of the international community. He builds an empire, called the Movement Nations Kingdom, and becomes their king. In this book, you will see the struggles, challenges, and wars that young Morgan went through from the time that he was a child until his last days.
Morgan, a young African American, was born during the hot Texan s
ummer of 1963. His father was a Caucasian American. His mother was African American, and her mother, Morgan’s grandmother came from an East African country. Morgan had a quiet childhood growing up with his parents. He was unbothered by the rest of the world and learned how to enjoy the little things like playing in his backyard or going to the park with his parents. It was simple, but he was happy and woke up each day feeling loved by his parents.
Despite growing up in Texas, Morgan was always raised to recognize his African heritage. At 14 years old, Morgan finally got to meet his grandmother, Amala. She had come to visit them unexpectedly so that she could spend quality time with Morgan. The two bonded over the weeks that she was there. They would spend their afternoons shopping for food, putting together puzzles, and basking in the sunshine. Before she left, Morgan gave Amala the promise that he would come to v
isit her in her home country someday. Though it was hard to say goodbye, Morgan was happy thinking about reuniting in the future.
Morgan grew up to be a very competitive youth, striving to be the best at everything he did. He won almost anything that he was challenged to. Young Morgan had started playing sports at a very young age, and quickly became one of the best players in his neighborhood. He played everything, from soccer to basketball. Everybody knew that he was the best. He would always be picked first for sports teams, as everyone knew that he would do everything in his power to beat the other team. Because he wasn’t just the most talented but was also always the most driven and hungry for success.
When Morgan turned 16, he started to notice the injustices in his schools. All the educational facilities that he saw were segregated,
separating the black students from the white students. This encouraged Morgan to organize a student strike demanding to end segregation once and for all. He worked tirelessly day and night to encourage his fellow students, including a few teachers, to participate in the strike. It saw a modest turnout, and Morgan’s parents were proud to see the impact that their son had on his community. Even though Morgan’s skin was passably white, his parents knew that his racial identity meant a lot to him. He defied expectations and helped educate people on how the darkness of his skin did not have to impact the heritage that he identified with. Following the organized strike, Morgan also joined school politics. He became Class President in his final year of school and made some honorable policy changes during his time in office.
As Morgan grew older, he quickly learned that he wanted to fulfill the American dream by get
ting a nice job. His experiences in school politics inspired him to aim for a higher job in the field. He had high hopes of one day being a U.S. senator to help fight for the voiceless. Unfortunately, Morgan was growing up in a poor and dangerous neighborhood, so getting the right education proved difficult. Morgan did not let this hurt his dreams, and surrounded himself with other people, pulling them in with his charisma.
Finally, when Morgan was 21 years old, he got the chance to visit his grandmother in East Africa. Not only would he get to fulfill his promise that he’d made so many years ago, but he would get to discover the history of his ancestors, learning more about what it was like to grow up in an African community. So, he flew over to the country. The moment he stepped into the warm African air, he felt at home, despite it being his first time there. He was thrilled to see his grandmother and was excit
ed to learn what the land had to offer. It wasn’t long before Morgan was learning the culture and language of the town that Amala lived in. He would dress in their traditional style with pride and loved visiting neighboring towns and countries.
Morgan was also given the chance to spend plenty of time with Amala. She acted as a mentor to him, teaching him all about the place that she grew up. She would take him through the towns and the cities and show him all the best places to spend time. She alluded to some of the injustices that she faced, especially growing up. She taught Morgan that she had moved to Texas as a young woman, where she gave birth to her daughter, Morgan’s mother. This would ensure that she had African and American citizenship, as she knew that it could offer her whatever future she may choose. Once her daughter had grown old enough to travel, she tried to bring her back to Africa. It was h
ard to raise a child here, as there was not adequate health care or education. So, they returned to America. Amala’s daughter ended up finishing her schooling and fell in love with Morgan’s father. They married and had Morgan. Amala ended up moving back to Africa on her own, knowing that her daughter was where she wanted to be.
Morgan was not meant to stay in Africa for too long. Though, he loved it so much that he kept delaying his flight home. After a year of living peacefully in East Africa, Morgan started to notice some of the regime brutality towards so many of the powerless and helpless people around him. The dictator who ruled the country tolerated nothing that threatened his governance. Because of this, the area faced severe corruption and brutality that was nothing like Morgan had ever seen before. Anyone who dared face the leader was imprisoned or executed, and so nobody was able to have a real sho
t at building a democracy.
As time went on, young Morgan continued to witness how the country was having its natural resources stolen by a man working with the regime. They would enrich themselves at the expense of the people. Corruption was so bad that people working in the mines were forced to work without pay for months on end. On the other side, corrupted entrepreneurs continued to get rich alongside the president and his family and friends. The entire country was without health care, had no access to school, and no medicine for those who were not rich. It was a tragedy to witness, and Morgan was watching it all. Everyone who spoke up continued to be jailed or killed. The justice system was working for the president, and not for the people.
Violence continued to grow around Morgan day in and day out. He quickly learned that the neighboring co
untries were not being led any differently. Amala had taken him to the neighboring countries, and what he was seeing was no different than the last. He knew that this corruption may be a nation-wide problem. It was not just that there were a few bad leaders, but that nobody had ever tried to stop them properly so that they kept thinking their corruption would go unchallenged.
Most elections in the region were highjacked by the ruling party. This made daily life for ordinary citizens much more difficult. Those who stole the votes did not need the people, so they did not serve them or care for them. There were never any elections, and the people who spoke up about the injustices were often thrown in jail or having their voices silenced. Education and other important accesses were not a possibility. Any Western aids were going back into the hands of the corrupted friends of the regime and into the pockets of politicians. Food and money for new schools were occasionally sent over, but the
corrupted leaders would steal those resources before any citizen had even heard about it.
In addition to the ruling party trying to control the nation’s people, they also controlled the nation’s media. The country had one national television channel and three radio stations. One station was for government-related topics, one for entertainment, and a third for religious topics. The ruling party had many strict rules that each station would have to follow, and they would punish creators if they stepped out of line. So, no reporters or radio personalities were ever allowed to speak poorly about the government or say anything negative about the ruling leaders. No station could criticize government policies or law changes. It was forbidden to blame any problems within the country on the government. Because the media never reported on these problems, it became easier for citizens to ignore them.
