KAMPALA, UGANDA | NOW THEN DIGITAL — Dr. Dennis Sempebwa, a co-founder of the gospel group Limit X, known for their 1990s hits, has launched his memoir titled “Black Like Me” in Kampala.
In his memoir, “Black Like Me,” Dr. Dennis Sempebwa shares his journey with Limit X and more. He delves into Uganda’s challenging past, including the Idi Amin era, civil war, and the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
The book challenges the narrative of victimhood and explores issues of race, poverty, and racism. Dr. Sempebwa emphasizes the potential for black individuals to break free from these narratives and make a positive impact.
Additionally, the memoir addresses complex topics like sexuality and gender identification.
“Can I be that black guy who will not keep saying we were disadvantaged what if I do not feel like a victim of supremacy? What if I reject this doctrine of my experiences? Can I be a black guy who isn’t a (victim) of poverty and racism, among others? You can be that black guy, we are amazing people we can stand out. We have the potential to be and have the potential to do something. There has to be that black man who can say for me no. I will be a disruptor,” Dr Sempebwa said.
During the book launch, Dorothy Kisaka, Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), praised Dennis as a trailblazer and highlighted the importance of African-authored books in preserving African stories.
”In the day and age where the fireside talks of Africa are fading out, books written by Africans are the new fire side. I salute the author Dr. Dennis Sempebwa, who is like the proverbial Joseph, a man with a coat of many colours.”, Kisaka said.
