FOLK 233 601 African Folklore

D. Samper
Lecture: Wednesday 5:15-8:30

"Despite the overwhelming reality of economic decline; despite unimaginable
poverty; despite wars, malnutrition, disease and political instability,
African cultural productivity grows apace: popular literatures, oral narrative
and poetry, dance, drama, and visual art all thrive."

— Kwame Anthony Appiah from In My Father's House.
