by Enuma Edwin Ezeude
An informative dialogue, African-American Children Visit the Homeland depicts the truth about the often-stereotyped and wondered-about family, lifestyle, culture, beliefs, and traditions unique to all Africans, through the eyes of two young children, Obi and Uzo. Enuma Edwin Ezeude brings light to certain stereotypes about Africa and its people and portrays the culture consciousness inherent to a particular society. Parents who migrated into the American community to live a Western life may find it beneficial to send their offspring on a visit to experience a life other people cherish.
