5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for those interested in Ájé (iyaami), August 17, 2007
This review is from: Our Mothers, Our Powers, Our Texts: Manifestations of j in Africana Literature (Blacks in the Diaspora) (Paperback)
In the west, where the knowledge of the sacred techonology of the mother is almost non-existant, this book is a blessing. Gives a great introductory understanding of the dynamic force/being/ability/power that is Ájé.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but difficult read., October 31, 2008
This review is from: Our Mothers, Our Powers, Our Texts: Manifestations of j in Africana Literature (Blacks in the Diaspora) (Paperback)
This is one of those books that you cant fly through! You will have to take this page by page to under and overstand the role(s) of the Aje. What/who the aje are, and their manifestations in the universe. I find this a difficult read. (Though very good one)

After reading this book, you will agree that the name Witch, is very limiting, and incorrect in addressing the Aje!

This review is from: Our Mothers, Our Powers, Our Texts: Manifestations of j in Africana Literature (Blacks in the Diaspora) (Paperback)
This a great piece of work for a topic that often goes untold. It is boh empowering for women and men. This book delves into womanhood in a powerful way that is designed for a spiritual and scholarly discourse. The use of literature which one of the most powerful storytelling tools illustrates Yoruba history and spirituality that contextulizes the experience of Africans in the diaspora.
