Devlieger, Patrick J.
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v46 n4 p439-51 Dec 1999
Fifty-five proverbs relating to disability were collected from sub-Saharan African countries and analyzed for larger frames of reference of personhood and cosmogony. Themes include warnings against laughing at a disabled person, personhood, existential insecurity, acceptance of what is, and the function and nature of disability. (DB)
