A Touch of Humanity: Review of Drummer Boy by Cyprian Ekwens Mar 24, 2000
Cyprian Ekwensi looks at the world through the eyes of a young blind boy in southern Nigeria. The young boy has to learn to deal with the world through the music he plays on his drum. Through those drum-beats, he reaches the hearts of people who may not have noticed his existence . I feel that Cyprian uses this character to show us that no matter what we think our limitations are, we still have the capacity to mtouch people's lives and make them aware of other things going on in the vicinities. empathy
