Mary Nyambura Muchiri was born in Murang'a District of the Central Province, in Kenya. In September, 2001, she joined Taylor, a Christian University in Upland, IN, USA. In the process of teaching writing and literature courses, she became aware of racist views against black people that she had never experienced before. This caused her to ask herself if black people had been created by God to be humiliated and exploited by others, and how this had continued for generations. The Power of Story is the result of her quest for answers. Her main finding was that it was a man-made scheme that has been perpetuated over the last 400 years, through stories used to justify racist regimes like Colonialism, Nazism and Apartheid, as well as slavery, which have dehumanized and exploited the black person and continue to do so even today. The stereotype created was t just against the African Continent and the dark skin, but also against the physical features and the moral character of black people. Her greatest hope in exposing these myths is that her readers will see them for what they really are: fake, and t only reject them personally, but also help to educate others. She hopes to reach everyone, especially the young people for whom change is much easier than for the older generations, and for whom the stories are part of rmal life. She hopes that young people's experience of a global world will help them to discover the truth for themselves.
