So much of the literature about Africa focuses on the negative and brutal; Rainbow Academy provides a refreshing diversion from this stereotype. It follows the day-to-day activities of the Headmaster, Gregory Blackwood, over a two-year period as he battles with the challenges of trying to operate a school with limited resources and an uncertain future. The book explores the difficulties created in Africa by the lack of legislative protection and the bureaucratic and colonial attitudes still evident in some foreign investors. The characters and situations described are sometimes bizarre, sometimes sinister but always cleverly interwoven to make a credible tale with a thread of hope running through it that the corrupt and ill-intentioned may just be defeated in the end.
Rainbow Academy is dedicated to all the honest, hardworking people of Uganda who are the real people that have made this country prosper so much since the tyranny of the 1970's and 1980's. The author has included his own family in this dedication; Violet, his wife and their three children, Christopher, Vincent, and Clair.
