The African

Castro is very interested in the African continent. He believes that the media presents a far too negative, Big Brother-like colonial image of the continent and is of the opinion that the best way that the West can contribute to a change and a brighter future is by supporting the democratization of those African nations which still have one party systems and/or are pure dictatorships.

The book entitled The African depicts the life of a man and his aspiration to the presidency in a West African country. With this book Castro hopes to contribute to a changed perspective on West Africa and to inspire people who live in non-democratic countries to the notion that it is worth struggling for a better future by peaceful means. Castro is also the producer of a film about the presidential candidate which is also entitled The African.
