Oludumare by E. Bolaji Idowu

Mekyea mo abusafo.

I just finished reading Oludumare by E. Bolaji Idowu. It is a very close 8 out of 10 book. It represents the religion of the Yoruba in comparison to the christian religion. The author is christian. The book provides great information for a novice or intermediate level inquirer. It tells the purpose of the orisas, some of the stories of the major orisas, the purpose of the religion, and attempts to explain the concept/origin of Oludumare. The book has great insight into why the Yoruba people perform their ceremonies and why they no longer do them exactly the same. The book even goes into the issue that people have with the custom of 'human sacrifice'.

And by the way, the book never mentions dolls and needles and transferring souls.

ANTI-RACIST PHILOSOPHY IN CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN MUSIC VIDEOS: EXPLORING THE RECURRING THEMES

In this presentation, I deconstruct music videos of popular music genres (reggae, dancehall, rap, soul) that addresses racism through anti-racist lyrics and visuals. In the wake of racist onslaught and police brutalities against people of African descent, conscious musicians have channeled activism through their lyrics and music videos to create social awareness of systemic racism, genocide, and unjust killings through various forms of white terror domination systems.
