9780791438817: Afrikan Mothers: Bearers of Culture, Makers of Social Change

This book highlights the integrity of some Afrikan mothers who, under European domination within the United States and the United Kingdom, have used their own experience as a foundation for understanding the impact of cultural imposition on their children's lives. Most of these mothers have chosen to place their children in school environments that will educate their children about their culutral roots, in order that their cultural memory and knowledge of Afrikan people will be handed down intergenerationally. This book looks sensitively at the herstories of women who are undergoing their own process of transformation and offers insights into the historical and continuing struggle of Afrikan people as a cultural entity living within European-oriented societies.

Review :

Afrikan Mothers provides a unique and powerful account of Afrikan women s attempts to challenge and resist contemporary conditions, particularly in relation to racism, schooling, and education. Nah Dove s book, which focuses on Afrikan women both in the United Kingdom and the United States, enriches us with its blend of empirical rich descriptiveness and subtle theorizing. A vital book for readers and students of Afrikan studies, women s studies, cultural studies, education, Afrikan American studies, and sociology. Cecile Wright, The Nottingham Trent University
A special Dobale for Afrikan Mothers and for Nah Dove! Nah Dove s text is tender, full of grace, and gentle even as she weaves a powerful and mighty pen in a solid cultural analysis, Afrikan Centered perspective, and in depth research. Dr. Dove s commitment to the struggle is evident in her loving description of the women that she profiles and her respectful discussion of their lives and choices for their children. Dr. Dove speaks as an Afrikan mother, activist, and scholar and this combination infuses her work with humility and conviction. Nah Dove is to be commended for this gift to all bearers of cultures. Her wisdom makes her one of the women who gather at the grindstones. Kariamu Welsh Asante, Temple University"
