Welcome to my new blogfolio!

African Sunrise

I am happy you decided to stop by and read my perspective on the African Diaspora Literature.  I have created this blog to be a traveler’s guide to the literature that I am  reading and discussing in my class at Armstrong Atlantic State University.  Feel free to leave comments, but make sure that they are tasteful and free of foul language and demeaning terminology.  Thank you and enjoy your journey!

“This is the kola nut. This seed is a star. This star is life. This star is us.” Chris Abani, Graceland

“ARISE, O COMPATRIOTS”  the Nigerian National Anthem

Arise, O compatriots,

Nigeria’s call obey

To serve our Fatherland

With love and strength and faith.

The labour of our heroes past

Shall never be in vain,

To serve with heart and might

One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.

O God of creation

Direct our noble cause

Guide our leaders right

Help our youth the truth to know

In love and honesty to grow

And living just and true

Great lofty height attain

To build a nation where peace

And justice shall reign.
