Pressestimmen

"The Shattered Gourd is an original, searching landmark study. Through the vivid and powerful metaphor of the shattered gourd, the author explores the visual and verbal elements, textures and textualities, and the crossroads of Yoruba influences and their recurrence in African-American art." - Rowland O. Abiodun, John C. Newton Professor of Fine Arts and Black Studies, Amherst College
