Description

This erudite collection of writings from leading lights in the African literary community pays tribute to Ama Ata Aidoo through a broad spectrum of articles and personal memoirs from scholars of different generations and from other literary artists. The book conveys the full parameters of Aidoo's place as a literary innovator and exponent of radical, social and cultural thought in Africa and internationally; especially on issues of African self-consciousness and gender equality. This important book is a celebration of Aidoo and her continuing commitment to elevate African writing on the world stage. She is one of Africa's most courageous writers in her belief in Africans telling their own stories in a globalized world that often tends to marginalize the continent.
