African Voices : An Anthology of Native African Writing (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from African Voices: An Anthology of Native African Writing I T is becoming increasingly obvious to all thoughtful people that the African continent and the African nations within it are going to play a most decisive part in the immediate future of world history. Indeed, already the importance of Africa is becoming evident. Yet only those who have had the privilege of living and work ing in some part of that vast and lovely, yet tumultuous, land know its magic. To the great majority of Europeans, it is still a dark and brooding and mysterious continent. One of the reasons for this is that although there have been in recent years a great number of books about Africa, there has been practically nothing from African writers available in English. This anthology, so carefully and comprehensively prepared, will serve to Open the door: to give a glimpse of some of the treasure which is there, within. It will also triumphantly give the lie to that idea, so prevalent in some quarters, that Africa is incapable of producing any creative art.
