THE STORY:

Over the past few years, Jean Clovis of Cameroon has conducted extensive research on his ethnic group, the Bamileke. His research identifies the many customs and local traditions that exist. His research also examines the loss of those local traditions and customs in the face of globalization. This body of work could not have come at a better time as many Africans throughout the diaspora, particularity those in the America's, have traced their ancestries to places like Cameroon and are eager to learn about a culture once lost to them via the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. This body of work, edited by Jason Vasser-Elong, who traced his maternal ancestry to the Bamileke, serves as a model of collaboration and reconciliation with his ancestral home and the people there. This book will be self published via X-Libris by Jean Clovis and will be distributed throughout Africa, Europe and beyond.
