From poverty alleviation to inequality and injustice, Emmanuel is best known for championing challenging campaigns to drive global change, but in 2021 he turned his attention to centuries of racial terror: colonialism that traumatized and shaped people of color worldwide.

Determined to shed light on the dark period in our past that most people would rather forget, he began researching, swooping in, and pioneering the tricky work of historical consultant that culminated with a 700-page legendary classic book - “Triumph of Racism: The History of White Supremacy in Africa & How Shithole Entered the U.S Presidential Lexicon,” which now lie in the shelves of the U.S. Library of Congress.

Emmanuel’s research, a comprehensive chronological compilation of the brutal and nefarious extermination of millions of African men, women, and children dating over 400 years, is a riveting realism that does not only make everyone live and breathe colored folks’ pain but see the urgent need for racial healing.

He joined RHI from Maryland base DV Consult Inc., where, as President of Community Engagement and Impact, he developed the organization’s overarching strategic vision and oversaw the management of its charitable programming. He also offered advice and expertise to the company, improving its business performance in terms of operations, profitability, management, structure, and strategy.

Prior to that, Emmanuel served as Permanent Representative of the African Parliamentary Alliance for United Nations Reforms in Geneva – Switzerland, where he played a pivotal role in safeguarding human rights, while ensuring Parliaments of Africa speak with one voice in pushing the African Common Position on UN reforms as enunciated by the Ezulwini Consensus and the Sirte Declaration.

Emmanuel knighted special notable and Ambassador for peace by traditional rulers of Anglophone Cameroon.

Earlier in his career, he was Amnesty International (UK Section) speaker for schools, colleges, and universities. At the 2004 Amnesty AGM in Manchester, he delivered a successful-far-reaching Arms Trade Motion which enormously contributed to Amnesty International’s role in championing the first ever United Nations Global Arms Trade Treaty.

In 2008, he led a barefoot campaign to 10 Downing Street London, delivering a petition to the British government and raising huge public awareness of the plight of refugees. This was followed by the 2011 “Big Society Initiative for Africa” conference which he organized in the House of Commons (UK Parliament), bringing together influential UK-based African Diplomats, NGO representatives, members of the African Diaspora and senior UK policy and decision-makers, including government ministers to support forcibly displaced children in Africa.

A multi-award-winning refugee rights campaigner who has scooped one of the highest accolades in Britain, Dr Neba-Fuh has travelled widely, often campaigning for human rights with passion, humanity, and cogency. He holds a Diploma in Management from Cambridge Tutorial College, BA (Hons) in Applied Community Work and Social Care from the University of Derby, MA, and PhD in Church History from Newburgh Theological College Indiana, and is currently a Fellow in the Religion, Conflict and Peace program at the University of Harvard.

Recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is what Emmanuel has spent his life fighting for. He strongly believes that the world can be a better place, even though there was slavery, even though there was colonization, even though there was apartheid and segregation. But if we don't talk about the horrific chapter of racial injustice that casts a shadow around us, if we don’t shine the light of truth on the destructive violence that traumatized people of color and caused real psychic damage not just to Black people but White people too, we're not going to get there. It was against this background that Racial Healing International (RHI) was set up.
