Blurb/Shorttext:
John Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations has evenly paid his due by collecting and publishing quotes of the Caucasian descent since 1855 to date thus I belief it’s time for black African wits and proverbs hence my bias. My work covers some known and some extinct proverbs from North, South, East and West African parentage which defiles epoch of dates because of black Africans’ oral text and symbols traditions. These carefully repertoires of annotated wits, phrases, proverbs and Adinkra signs traced to their sources in ancient and worldly literary wits in Africa by; •Indigenous rulers such as Kings, Griots of Old, Family & Clan heads •Clergymen; Archbishop Benson Idahosa, Bishop David Oyedepo •Statesmen & Politicians; Kwame Nkrumah, Nmadi Azikiwe, Haile Selassie •Musicians, Poets and Writers; Bob Marley, Ayi Kwei Armah, Wole Soyinka •Adinkra (cultural designs); express various themes that relate to the history, beliefs and philosophy of the African which mostly have rich proverbial meanings in their culture. This work is deliberately targeted to anyone who may be considering the usage of afro-centric illumination encompassing scriptwriters, bookmakers, diaspora and academia.
