Let’s discuss! I had the privilege of moderating the Intergenerational Celebration of the Legacy of Ama Ata Aidoo. This event was in Accra and featured a panel of women who shared their reflections and experiences. The event was organized by the Writers Project of Ghana and the AKO Caine Prize for African Writing.
Ama Ata Aidoo is a profound Ghanaian literary icon. She is an author, playwright, poet, and educator. Her works span topics including African feminism, human equality, and gender roles. She is still very much alive and this celebration illustrated how her legacy is also very much alive.
In this video, I share my experience with the event and my thoughts on the concept of progress within the topics that were discussed.
As I shared in the video, the panel dropped so many gems of knowledge and insight. What are your thoughts on the bigger picture of who deserves respect? Share with me so we can continue the conversation.
