One of the best things that happened to me in life, is reading this book in high school.
it took me to my heaven, and decades later am still in awe.
poems by Kwesi Brew, Wole Soyinka, JP Clark, Kofi
Awoonor, Leopold Senghor , Christopher Okigbo etc
All the African greats are found in this treasure of a book.
I absolutely love it.
yesterday with the unfortunate passing of Kofi Awoonor in the dastardly act of violence and terrorism in Nairobi and Kenya. A friend and I reminisced about this book.
ah every African child should read it
