We Should Know

Kookoo hin ko

Yaa Asantewa

Ôba basia a

Ogyina apremo ano

Kookoo hin ko

Yaa Asantewaa!

English Translation:

Kookoo hin ko

Yaa Asantewa

The mere woman

Who faces the cannon

Kookoo hin ko

Yaa Asantewaa!

If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it. The men better let them.

~ Sojourner Truth

Africa has been, through prejudice and ignorance, so sadly misrepresented, that anything like intelligence, industry, etc., is believed not to exist among its natives. But allow me to remark in the outset reader, that in our markets you may find beautiful silk and cotton goods manufactured by the more intelligent and ingenious among our people, we make our own saddles, cutlery, sword blades, javelins, and lances.

~ Nicholas Said

Spirit is to us whatever substance is purely active,

immaterial, always gains understanding through itself

(i.e. directly), and acts from self-motion and with intention,

in regard of an end and goal of which it is conscious to itself.

~ Anton Wilhelm Amo
