Issue Date: April 1988
In some African traditions, the resurrection of kings ensures the continuity of nations by Jan Knappert The Lianja epic, a tale of generations of the royal dynasty of the hero Lianja, remains popular among most of the peoples of the central Congo basin, today considered the Kuba cultural sphere. Wooden statuary depicting kings is also popular among the Kuba peoples. Above is a photograph of a ndop , or king figure, representing the seventeenth-century monarch Bom Bosh. O ne of the oldest motifs in world literature, the theme of resurrection goes back to the earliest roots of mythology. The belief that a god or a divine king would be reborn in his son, or as a poor child, was widespread long before Christianity canonized it.
In Africa, only one form of the complex concept of the resurrected god or divine king is widespread — that of the king who is reborn in his son. Islam and Christianity introduced many new ideas into Africa, most of which quickly found a place in African mythology and completely transformed it, often making it hard to distinguish the indigenous African elements. Thus the theme of resurrection in African myth differs from its familiar ancient Middle Eastern counterparts: the preclassical theme of the god who dies and is revived (Osiris, Attis, Adonis); the Jewish tradition of King David who will return to save his people; the Christian concept of the resurrected Christ.

Western Africa:

Western Africa is the home of many of the sculptural traditions for which African art has become internationally known. Wood carving is especially prominent in Cote d'Ivoire, in Sierra Leone and in Nigeria. Western Africa also claims an extensive range of other art forms, including clay sculpture, bronze casting, jewelry, and weaving. Some of these traditions are driven by religious practices in agricultural societies, others by the patronage of kings. The Senufo people of the Cote d'Ivoire make a staff with a female figure at the top, symbolizing both the power of humans to reproduce and the fertility of the soil. Ghana is well known for its Kente cloth, carved wooden stools, gold jewelry, and wood carvings. In days past, the kings of Ghana wore so much gold that they inspired the saying: "Great men move slowly."

Africa Access Review Of Children's Materials,
ed. Brenda Randolph
  • Introduction
  • ISBN: 0-03-047424 Subjects: Africa/Literature/African Americans/Diaspora Review: This textbook on African American literature includes selections by some of Africa's most outstanding writers. Claude Ake, Buchi Emecheta, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Leopold Senghor, and Amos Tutuloa are among the writers included. In addition, there are two works from the past, a poem by Pharoah Akhenaton, and an excerpt from Olaudah Equiano's famous narrative on his capture and enslavement in the 1700s. These selections and others in the text are preceded by background notes and information on the literary form being highlighted. At the conclusion of each offering, a "Responding to the Selection" section provides a review of the material covered. Additional features include a map of Africa which shows the birthplaces of the contributors, a pronunciation guide for Igbo words, and splendid photographs, many of which are in color. This outstanding collection is a must purchase for all schools. (Brenda Randolph) Subjects: Folklore/Mpongwe/West Africa Review: This retelling of a West African tale reinforces the use of stereotypical language ("hut" and "jungle"). The story focuses on the search for a husband for Princess Gorilla. King Gorilla wants a husband for his daughter who is "very strong and brave." The princess just wants someone who loves her. The king decrees that whoever can drink a barrel of a new kind of water (actually vinegar) can marry the princess. The winner or rather winners turn out to be a group of monkeys who trick the king by pretending to be one monkey. Curiously, the king accepts the deception. The princess is saved from an unhappy marriage by a leopard who denounces the monkeys as cheaters. The tale ends not by punishing the cheaters but by explaining why monkeys live in treetops. This conclusion is unexpected and puzzling. One expects a strong moralistic ending rather than an explanation about the habitat of monkeys. (Brenda Randolph)

If present-day Politically Correct head-in-the-sand "knowledge" is anything to go by, the negro is very much the same as a White Man. However, anyone with just half a brain left will tell you that that can't be so. After all, there are just too many obvious differences. "But," says the liberal bleeding-heart useless idiot, "it's quite clear that the African American or any other kind of black — whether from Africa or not, and whether really black or just one of the shades of brown, and whether pure-blooded or of mixed-blood — is simply a White Man caught in a black skin. And, brother," and here the voice is set to tremble a little, "it is our christianist duty to help him get out of that black skin and take his rightful place among the people of this earth. And, brother, let me tell you more: We have been holding them back and we should give them human rights."

    "Collective Unconscious" or "Meta Unconscious" The intent of this essay is to attempt to explain the appearance of Eastern or Hindu words, such as Krishna and Shiva, in the speech reversals of African, Afro American, and Australian Aboriginal people. I will explore Carl Jung's theory of the collective unconscious as a possible explanation and then put forward another model based on an application of the concepts of oral tradition and oral diffusion. This alternative model I have termed the "Meta Unconscious."
    Hindu words regularly appear in the Reverse Speech of African, Afro American and Australian Aboriginal people. Occasionally this appearance has a religious purpose, but in most cases they are used in a unique and non - religious manner. Oddly these words are identified with the people themselves, in that Krishna and Shiva are used as substitute words for Aboriginal or African or black. They operate then as synonyms for the names of the peoples already mentioned. For this reason I termed these reversals, "Identity Metaphors." Examples may be found heard and studied on David Oate's web site at:

    Introduction: Diffusion and other Problems in the History of African States
    Professor James Giblin, Department of History, The University of Iowa A discussion of the following African States:
    Introduction Historians and archaeologists have learned a great deal about the developments which preceded the emergence of states in Africa. They can now say with confidence that in most cases, Africans developed states in response to local conditions and opportunities. Rarely does the diffusion of ideas from distant sources seem to have been important in bringing about the formation of a state. Today historians do not think that the history of African states is a story of the spread of influences from Egypt, Europe or Asia into the rest of Africa. Instead, the story they see involves African people living in a great variety of locations who use their political skills and wisdom to create for themselves centralized systems of government. Besides learning about the local origins of African states, historians have found that states were most likely to arise in regions endowed with fertile soils, abundant rains, lakes or rivers rich in fish, and mineral deposits, and in societies which enjoyed plentiful opportunities to trade. In fact, the four societies discussed below possessed famous traditions of art precisely because they had productive economies and vibrant commercial systems which allowed artists and craft workers freedom from scarcity, and provided access to metals, woods, clays and other media. Finally, historians have also learned that African states created sophisticated institutions of government, although, as has been true in all human societies, greed and love of power have often caused political instability and social crisis. The following sections, therefore, concentrate on the local conditions which led to the creation of states and the creation and destruction of political institutions.
