Abstract: 

The search for greener pastures during the colonial era led many African youth to leave their homes to seek employment in Southern Africa's goldmines, and commercial farms. Colour-bar prevented them of opportunities to becoming specialist. The immigrant experiences echo sentiments of inequality. They built some of the largest world economies and their efforts remained unrecognised. The rise of the civil rights movement in the sixties coincided with a concerted effort to do away with political oppression in all spheres of social life during the same period in Africa. The construction of useful global organisation demands an understanding of the historical past and the scarcity of talent and competency necessary in triumphant businesses.
