Preview: On Sunday 22nd April 2017, I suggested that my kids wear to church, the above Adire outfits I’d bought for them the day before, when we’d traveled from Lagos to the African Drums Festival venue in Kuto, Ogun State.
To my surprise, the 4 older ones protested that they would get laughed at by peers for wearing “strange” outfits, opting instead for their usual western themed attires.
BUT after I’d told them about the history of Adire fabric and its international reputation, they relented.
However, their initial reactions impressed upon me the need to make deliberate EDUCATION on African traditions, cultures, values and the History of Ancient African Civilization of my kids a MAJOR focus of my parenting efforts.
If someone told African kids all these things and taught them about THEIR RICH ANCESTRY- of which a lot is being re-discovered even now by today’s archeologists and researchers, the young African would stop feeling inferior !
[In case you wonder what I mean by the foregoing, I offer 2 URLs:
An African/Black kid informed and empowered in this manner, is likely to develop great self esteem knowing s/he comes from a line of humans who made significant contributions to civilization.

The list of inventions he credits to these black heroes is shocking in significance, because we use them virtually EVERYDAY, yet most of us would never guess a black person made them!
