Further novel approaches to the problems of race, concepts of heroism and African writer’s memory and reinvention of linear time are all highlighted in this volume. It has been observed in spite of centuries of human clams to development and civilisation, that the cultural division between black and white has been fixed and naturalised often through majority societal representations. The unity of culture is also highlighted in the importance of sharing equally fruits of modern collective efforts. A palimpsestic or multidimensional notion of time and existence is replacing the linear time that is very much an arbitrary creation of humanity’s materialist consciousness. Yet the perception of unity in great variety broadens us. As we recognize common values, the plan of universal brotherhood, indeed, comes nearer and we begin to sense our own place in its realization.
