If children are our future, its important that they remember the past, because if they dont, no one will. Who, if not parents, can impart family histories and heritage upon children? Nkem DenChukwus inspirational collection, the issues of bloodline and heritage are tackled head-on, along with the importance of ones culture.
In Part I, DenChukwu delves into the tribal heritage of the Igbos of Eastern Nigeria. She explains it vividly, how being born in any one country does not determine who you really are. Instead, your bloodline represents your true heritage. In understanding the difference, DenChukwu believes you can better understand yourself.
In Part II, she transitions into lucid life tales to show the beauty in a language, how ones culture and the lack thereof, can affect ones thought processes and behavior. It is possible to lose an accent or assimilate into a new culture. It is also possible to forget your heritage, and in this forgetfulness, people lose much.
