Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters

Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, (written by John Steptoe) is a Southern Afrikan tale of two Afrikan sistas with strikingly different personalities and behaviours. Manyara & Nyasha are the daughters of Mufaro, but Manyara is selfish, spoiled and has bad character. On the other hand, Nyasha is kind, considerate, loving and lives in harmony with nature and spirit.

As the story unfolds, and the Ohene (king) of the land begins to seek a wife among all the sistas in the village community, the plot thickens. The true nature of Manyara and Nyasha will be revealed in this magnificent story of Afrikan family, values, love & spirituality. I encourage Black parents, grandparents and educators to purchase this beautiful book for your daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren sons & students! I am confident that they will all enjoy it immensely. O dabo.

    • Greetings Sista,
      I appreciate you for your participation here at Umkhonto We Sizwe. I have noticed that you have been reblogging many of my latest posts and i just wanted to say Asante sana for your interest, encouragement and support. Afrikan centered indigenous education IS truly a collective effort, and so it is a joy and a blessing to know that there are so many other Afrikans in the world who are committed to this sacred mission.

      Restoring Our righteous ancestral legacy of nurturing and reviving True tradition and culture in our families and communities is essential to Our collective survival. And it all starts with the way we treat and honor Our women & children! So, with that said, Meda ase once again! O dabo.

      Sista Kentake.
