Hidden from inquisitive minds, often by a variety of factors, millennia of undergrowth, conspiratorial bodies, or even personal perceptions of historical truth.

Researching Agricultural Programs
Constraints to capital and talent are often cited as constraints to the growth of SMEs across Africa, most of which start out as either family owned, or family funded ventures.

The vice-president of Liberia, Joseph Boakai met with representatives of West African farmers, to talk about progress in agricultural development over the past decade. He said that his government is increasing public investment in agriculture.

Edward Colston (2 November 1636 – 11 October 1721) was a Bristol-born English slave trader, merchant and Member of Parliament. Much of his wealth, although used often for philanthropic purposes, was acquired through the trade and exploitation of slaves. He endowed schools and almshouses and his name is commemorated in several Bristol landmarks, streets, three schools and the Colston bun. Early life: Colston was born on 2 November 1636 in Church Street, Bristol, the youngest of at least 15 children. His parents were William Colston, a prosperous merchant and Sarah (née Batten). He was brought up in Bristol until the time of the English Civil War, when he probably lived for a while on his father's estate in Winterbourne, just north of the city.
