  • Mobilizing Musical Performance and Expressive Culture in the Ebola 2014
           Epidemic: Introduction
    • Abstract: The recent epidemic of the Ebola virus disease, centered in West Africa, riveted the world's attention as the ominous potential loomed for the spread of the disease around the globe. While the press and scientists have focused on deploying medical strategies to combat the virus, the role of the arts in addressing the outbreak has received much less attention. Accounts of the epidemic rarely mention the arts; medical and anthropological policy papers largely ignore performance and aesthetics. But as Jill Sonke and Virginia Pesata have pointed out, "It must not be overlooked that in the Ebola response, the arts were employed at both the grassroots and formal levels to reach large populations of people with critical ...

  • Ebola as African: American Media Discourses of Panic and Otherization
    • Abstract: The US news media tapped into Americans' fear and conceptualization of Ebola as "other," "scary," and "African," which led to the othering of Africa, Africans, and those returning from Africa. Such otherization had real-life, and in some cases, traumatizing consequences.This virus is not being caused by Africa.We are Africans. We don't have Ebola as a continent.Before the 2014 Ebola outbreak, with perhaps the exception of Boko Haram and the Chibok schoolgirls' kidnapping in Nigeria in April 2014, West Africa was not on most Americans' radar. In late 2014, however, (West) Africa became synonymous with Ebola (Opar 2014). Although the first patient from the 2014 Ebola outbreak to contract the virus was documented in ... Read More

  • Music and the Ecology of Fear: Kanyeleng Women Performers and Ebola
           Prevention in The Gambia
    • Abstract: By incorporating unfamiliar information into a familiar song form with particular social and emotional meanings, performers challenged misconceptions about Ebola and facilitated their listeners' understanding.With 28,616 reported cases and 11,310 deaths, the 2013–2016 Ebola epidemic caused devastating loss of life in the most affected countries—Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone (WHO 2016). Ebola crippled already weak health systems, food supplies, and economies, and severely strained systems of social support and care (Wilkinson and Leach 2014). One of the most disturbing things about it is that many of these deaths could have been prevented: "If even modest investments had been made to build a public health ... Read More

  • Beyond Ebola: Fundraising and the Impact of Ebola on Music and Dance
           Tourism in Guinea
    • Abstract: The GAC raised money to provide resources to the networks of expatriates living in Seattle, and did so in a way that attempted to push back against the dominant narratives revolving around the Ebola outbreak.In Conakry, Guinea's capital, on December 29, 2015, Guinean president Alpha Condé announced that the World Health Organization had officially declared an end to the Ebola outbreak in Guinea.1 The crowd assembled before him erupted in applause that lasted more than fifteen minutes. The next day, an estimated 100,000 people attended the "Bye-Bye, Au Revoir Ebola" concert at the Palais du Peuple in Conakry, with performances by some of the most popular mamaya, hip-hop, and reggae artists in the country.I first ...

  • Music, Media, and the Ethnopoetics of Two Ebola Songs in Liberia
    • Abstract: In Liberia, one can infer from Ebola song texts how various motivations and ideas have influenced the language, style, and organization of pieces directed by NGOs and those composed by local artists.In 2014, the world experienced its largest known outbreak of Ebola virus disease, concentrated in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. In response to mistrust and misinformation, public-health officials designed Ebola out-reach campaigns to prevent disease transmission. Several of these campaigns implemented musical involvement through song competitions and other participatory events. Music producers, especially NGO sponsors and expatriate artists, used radio and online sources like YouTube and SoundCloud to publicize ... Read More

  • "Ebola in Town": Creating Musical Connections in Liberian Communities
           during the 2014 Crisis in West Africa
    • Abstract: Song was a pivotal part of the Ebola response in Liberia, and it should be examined more closely for future epidemics.The Ebola hemorrhagic fever epidemic of 2014–2016 affected nearly 11,000 people in Liberia, West Africa. Of those infected, some 5,000 died (CDC 2017; Frieden et al. 2014; Gire et al. 2014). This health emergency proved to be a frightening period for people who had lived through a long period of civil war, which had concluded a little more than a decade earlier (Mitman 2014). The outbreak began near the end of March 2014 and sputtered out nearly two years later, in March 2016; the most intense period of the disease dated from August 2014 to March 2015. During the height of the outbreak, more than ... Read More

  • David Livingstone and the Myth of African Poverty and Disease: A Close
           Examination of his Writing on the Pre-Colonial Era by Sjoerd Rijpma
           (review)
    • Abstract: Sjoerd Rijpma's book, David Livingstone and the Myth of African Poverty and Disease: A Close Examination of His Writings on the Pre-Colonial Era, is an excellent attempt at removing misconceptions about precolonial Africa. It makes obvious that the African continent—the second-largest continent, after Asia—is so diverse that just about anything anybody says about it can be seen as gospel truth in some places and at some points in time.Given the human trait to attribute the worst to others and the best to oneself, it is unsurprising that what was either forcibly pinned on or stuck to Africa happened to be the worst, especially in published works by negative and skeptical authors, including Joseph Conrad, who saw the ...

  • Never Look an American in the Eye: A Memoir: Flying Turtles, Colonial
           Ghosts, and the Making of a Nigerian American by Okey Ndibe (review)
    • Abstract: Never Look an American in the Eye is Nigerian-born Okey Ndibe's hilarious but penetrating and, as some critics have concluded, charming memoir, which details aspects of his life and times in America. In it, he provides information on substantive relationships that he has had with some of Africa's leading writers, including Chinua Achebe, who passed away a couple of years ago; Wole Soyinka, the first black Nobel laureate in literature and a distinguished author and playwright; Kenyan-born Ngugi wa Thiong'o, a distinguished professor; and Ghana-born Kofi Awoonor, a well-known diplomat, cited in the acknowledgments—together with Achebe, and Aliu Babatunde Fanfunwa—as being the memoirist's "three inspiring ancestors" ...

  • Brazilian–African Diaspora in Ghana: The Tabom, Slavery, Dissonance of
           Memory, Identity, and Locating Home by Kwame Essien (review)
    • Abstract: This book fills a crucial gap in ongoing discussions about reverse migrations in the African diaspora, of which the Tabom, former African slaves who after slave revolts in 1835 migrated from Brazil to the Gold Coast (present-day Ghana), constitute an important part. In company with James Lorand Matory's Black Atlantic Religion (2005), this book tells a rich story of return and exchange between West Africa and Brazil.Given land by a local Ga chief, the Tabom people settled around Jamestown, in Accra (capital of Ghana), where they engaged in trading and other agricultural ventures. Brazilian–African Diaspora in Ghana examines the history of the Tabom's movements and ties with Brazil and other diasporic communities ... Read More

  • Axioms of K. A. Busia, Ghana's 2nd Prime Minister (1969–1972) ed. by
           Nana A. K. Anane-Agyei (review)
    • Abstract: Several African political leaders have had their axioms and aphorisms published as part of their efforts to preserve the legacies of their leadership. For example, those of William V. S. Tubman, Liberia's late president, were published as Aphorisms of W. V. S. Tubman, and those of Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's late president, were styled as Axioms of Kwame Nkrumah. Then, in 2013, selected political and other sayings of K. A. Busia, the late prime minister of Ghana's second republic (1969–1972), were compiled and published as Axioms of K. A. Busia.Compiled, edited, and introduced by Nana A. K. Anane-Agyei, a historian and alumnus of the University of Ghana, this book "covers a wide spectrum of issues that became the ... Read More

  • Leadership and the Problem of Electoral Democracy in Africa: Case Studies
           and Theoretical Solutions by E. Ike Udogu (review)
    • Abstract: Leadership and the Problem of Electoral Democracy in Africa: Case Studies and Theoretical Solutions is authored by Appalachian State University Professor E. Ike Udogu. This book consists of a preface, acknowledgments, a list of acronyms-cum-abbreviations, eight chapters, and an extensive bibliography and subject index.Udogu's current book—which is very much like his other works1—aims at challenging scholars and practitioners interested in Africa's renaissance in this century. Part of the challenge is for the group to focus their research outputs on solutions relating to Africa's political problems, especially the continent's leadership quagmire, in order for Africa to be successful enough to claim the twenty-first ...

           Outcomes in Africa ed. by Ishmael I. Munene, and: Education in West Africa
           ed. by Emefa J. Takyi-Amoako (review)
    • Abstract: In Achieving Education for All: Dilemmas in System-Wide Reforms and Learning Outcomes in Africa, Ishmael I. Munene, a professor in the department of educational leadership at Northern Arizona University, and various contributors have utilized their deep knowledge of education, particularly in Africa, to produce a book that emphasizes universal primary education (UPE) for Africa and discusses aspects of "the dilemmas of access, equality, and quantity" (p. 1).Confirming some of the destructive forces at play when it comes to implementation and the lack of it, Munene in his introduction quotes the 1971 presidential address of Philip Foster, president of the International Education Society: "Human beings are long on ...

  • Kwame Nkrumah, 1909–1972: A Controversial Visionary ed. by Bea Lundt,
