About the Book

A NEW AGE emerges in Yorubaland as the nineteenth century comes to an end. It is a time for new heroes—pioneers in various fields of endeavor like Herbert Macaulay, Israel Ransome-Kuti, Obafemi Awolowo, and Tai Solarin. New frontiers are blazed in art, music, and education as told in stories about Candido Da Rocha, D. O. Fagunwa, Col. Victor Banjo, Susanne Wenger—Austrian artist turned priestess of the goddess Osun—and the trail-blazing musicians, Bobby Benson, Roy Chicago, and Fela. These modern heroes of the new age, as well as the author’s grandmother and parents, devise new ways of philosophy, religion, and thought to claim their future in a new country tested by disparate forces and competing interests.
