African Names: Reclaim Your Heritage
Would you like to feel closer to Africa? African American slaves were alienated from the connection to their ancestors and the mysticism of Africa. Credo Mutwa, the acclaimed African mystic and scholar explains, "A name is not simply a sound made into the empty air. A name is a thing so precious among our people that we believe very strongly that it possesses magical properties which are bestowed upon you." In "African Names" you will find a name for your child, or yourself, that you truly believe will reflect both heritage and personality. Inside you will discover names from all corners of Africa, complete with their meanings and origins.
