Jenkins, Kenneth V.
The make-up of a course in African literature for high school students is discussed. It is pointed out that the course can be constructed on already familiar lines. High school students will be able to describe clearly, for example, the relationship between environment and character or the dilemma of characters caught between traditional values and those of the city. A course would include as an introduction the religion and literature of ancient Egypt, which would enable students to make countless correspondences between the clothing, religion, art and customs of ancient Egypt and West African, East African and Central African forms. Various literary titles are suggested for inclusion. (Author/CK)
