Item description for Drumbeats of Black Africa. A Collection of African Proverbs by O. Charles Okwelume...

In Africa, someone with great wisdom and knowledge of tradition is identified by his ability to intersperse speech with congruous proverbs. The importance and beauty of proverbs lie in the hidden essence of a language or a culture which they convey. But the proverbs are gradually becoming forgotten, and there is a paucity of written cultural sources. This collection attempts to redress this state of affairs, strengthen traditional communication, thus enhancing cultural development. Some 2,000 proverbs are included originating in various African cultures, organised alphabetically.
