For me, Ayi Kwei Armah's Two Thousand Seasons is a book that every African proud of his Identity should read and read again. For one thing, it points Africans to values we should think of reviving, values of reciprocity, values of communal spirit, values of self determination. Again, the novel directs us as Africans, to the virtues of Pan-Africanism, for it is only through that we can overcome European domination and manipulation with the resultant plundering of our resources. Last but not least, this wonderful book teaches all Africans that women used to have a place of dignity in our culture; so those who see our women as mere sexual objects to be possessed, used and discarded should think again. It is a great book by all standards.
