Finding Black Sayings and Proverbs in Books ❤️🖤💚📚 "We believe the one who has the power. He is the one who gets to write the story. So when you study history, you must always ask yourself, whose story am I missing? Whose voice was suppressed so that this voice could come forth? Once you have figured that out, you must find that story. From there, you begin to get a clearer, yet still in inperfect, picture. from Homecoming 📙 by Yaa Gyasi pg. 226-227 ch. Yaw "Until the lion tells his side of the story, the tell of the hunt will always glorify the Hunter. ~African Proverb #history#blackliterature#books#proverbs#africanauthors#blackandbooked 📚📚

An incredible event held at Pointzero Coffee 2.0 today has set my mind on quite the journey.. many words were spoken leaving a trail of intrigue that my brain and soul, or rather entire being wants to investigate... Ziwaku... Pepo, Lesos vs Khangas, Leso Lessons, Origins of Swahili, The India-East Africa Dragonfly Migration, Identity... "Who are these people who forget the name of their seas?" What an honour to have finally met the uber-talented Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor and what a privilege to have been a part of this special event. #book#bookreading#yvonneadhiamboowuor#africanauthors#swahili#whyilovekenya#coffeetasting#leso#khanga#kenya#nairobi

Transfixing. That's the best way to describe Zinzi Clemmons's debut novel, What We Lose. To be South African and American. To be Black and white. To be caught in between new life and a recent death. // DM to purchase 🌼🌼🌼 In a series of fragmented meditations and vignettes, it tells the story of Thandi, who narrates the trajectory of her life in the context of her mother’s death – a loss so great that it overwhelms her. In overt and subtle ways, the novel sets out to do important work: to explore the contours of race, class and gender and the legacy of apartheid; and it succeeds best when exploring these ideas through the delicately drawn and profoundly moving portrait it offers of a relationship between mother and daughter.

Save the date! There's a book party next weekend @terrakulture_bookstore. @omojessikat is going to be launching her debut work, Wings of the Night Sky. If you're a lover of fantasy, African tales and superstitious animals, this is going to be a yummy read! Wings of the Night Sky is an adventure fantasy story. When Omiete answers the call that takes her on a journey to the magical kingdom of Aondo, she is faced with a new reality and purpose - to rescue the Guardian of the Keepers who protect the Kingdom in the sky and ultimately defeat the evil Dadan and his horde of shetani who constantly threaten to plunge it and the real world into darkness. Omiete is faced with mind chilling vampire creatures, cunning spiders, and soul sucking mbala. As she unites with the Keepers and her animal guide, she learns she must master her guide and her ehi to defeat the darkness. Most of all, she must tackle self doubt and crippling fear. Omiete finds friendship and innocent love in the chaos. Wings of the Night Sky is an imaginative piece for young adults and teenagers who in one way, are faced with life's adventures - telling them there is a will in their fear. You can visit her page for more information.
