“Ali Mazrui, a scholar and prolific author who set off a tsunami of criticism in 1986 by writing and hosting “The Africans: A Triple Heritage,” a public television series that culminated in what seemed to be an endorsement of African nations’ acquiring nuclear weapons, died on Oct. 12 at his home in Vestal, N.Y. He was 81.
His family announced the death without specifying a cause.
Uhuru Kenyatta, the president of Kenya, where Professor Mazrui was born, said at the time of his death that he was “a towering academician whose intellectual contributions played a major role in shaping African scholarship.”
His books and his hundreds of scholarly articles explored topics like African politics, international political culture, political Islam and globalization. He was for many years a professor at the University of Michigan, and since 1989 had held the Albert Schweitzer chair at Binghamton University, State University of New York.
Reflecting his habit of provocation, Professor Mazrui wrote an article in 2012, posted on Facebook, accusing Dr. Schweitzer, the revered medical missionary in pre-independence Gabon, of being “a benevolent racist.” He wrote that Dr. Schweitzer had called Africans “primitives” and “savages,” and had treated Africans in a hospital unit that was separate from, and less comfortable than, one for whites.
Professor Mazrui’s courage transcended ideas. When he was a political-science professor in Uganda in the early 1970s, the country’s brutal dictator, Idi Amin, invited him to be his chief adviser on international affairs — “his Kissinger,” Professor Mazrui told The New York Times in 1986. Instead, he publicly criticized Amin and fled Uganda.

Prof. Aslan waxa aan ku jecelahay qaab doodeedkiisa ku salaysan kalsoonida iyo aqoonta. Reza waa libaax miciyo tusay Bill Maher-ka “aan ahayn waxa uu ismooday”. Haddii qaabkiisan loo waajihi lahaa islaam-ka-bacowga – Islamophobia – isla markaana dhagax loo dhigi lahaa sheegashooyinkooda aan aqoonta iyo xaqiiqada taariikhiga ah ku dhisnayn…mugdigan dunidan ka muuqdaa ma waareen. Good job Dr. Reza…I love your style.

Isaga oo aan waxba warqad ku soo xar-xarriiqan ayuu soo hor istaagay ardaydii, bareyaashii iyo maamulka jaamacadda Harvard si uu u jeediyo hadalkii sagootiska ardayda MBA-da ka qalinjebisay gugan 2014. Dabadeed si aan la filayn hore na loo arag ayuu u hadlay!
