I was steeped in religion, the religion of the foreigners, because I wasn't there when my father converted, and so that was one aspect of life. I wasn't questioning it. In fact, I thought that Christianity was very a good and a very valuable thing for us. But after a while, I began to feel that the story that I was told about this religion wasn't perhaps completely whole, that something was left out. There was no attempt to understand what was behind the Igbo religion. It was simply dismissed as the worship of stones and, you know, not as good as Christianity. _____________ #chinuaachebe #igbo #nigeria PBS interview. https://youtu.be/JHF_w0gkyiI (Link in bio)

Igbo sayings and proverbs are far more valuable to me as a human being in understanding the complexity of the world than the doctrinaire, self-righteous strain of the Christian faith I was taught. ____________________________ #ChinuaAchebe, #Igbo, #Nigeria.

'The Education of a British-Protected Child' is a collection of essays that span reflections on personal and collective identity, on home and family, on literature, language and politics, and on Achebe's lifelong attempt to reclaim the definition of 'Africa' for its own authorship. For the first thirty years of his life, before Nigeria's independence in 1960, Achebe was officially defined as a 'British Protected Person'. In The Education of a British-Protected Child he gives us a vivid, ironic and delicately nuanced portrait of growing up in colonial Nigeria and inhabiting its 'middle ground', interrogating both his happy memories of reading English adventure stories in secondary school and also the harsher truths of colonial rule. ________________________ #chinuaachebe #theeducationofabritishprotectedchild #nigeria #britain

Chinua Achebe's 'The Voter' originally published in 1994 is a novel taken from his 'Girls at War and Other Stories' collection. The story is narrated in the third person by an unnamed narrator and after reading the story the reader realises that Achebe may be exploring the theme of corruption, loyalty, guilt, power, greed and tradition. ________________________ #chinuaachebe

Nations enshrine mediocrity as their modus operandi, and create the fertile ground for the rise of tyrants and other base elements of the society, by silently assenting to the dismantling of systems of excellence because they do not immediately benefit one specific ethnic, racial, political, or special-interest group. That, in my humble opinion, is precisely where Nigeria finds itself today! __________________ #ChinuaAchebe, #Nigeria There Was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra
