The Legacy of Efua Sutherland: Pan-African Cultural Activism

The Legacy of Efua Sutherland – this unique book published 11 years after Efua T. Sutherland’s death will rekindle an awareness of the cultural dynamism, activism and Diasporic connections that Efua Theodora Sutherland achieved through her lifetime’s work.

Efua Sutherland, Ghana-born educator, publisher, artist, activist, director, dramatist and writer, holds a special place in twentieth-century African studies. This timely volume provides a comprehensive appreciation of her creative life and concerns. The many respected and eminent contributors gathered here pay tribute – in essays, poems, reminiscences and research – to the unparalleled influence Dr Sutherland’s innovatory work continues to exercise internationally.

Situating her achievements within their appropriate ideological and historical contexts, The Legacy of Efua Sutherland reaffirms the importance of the critical connections this extraordinary woman made between Africa and its Diaspora, reflecting her deep passion for Pan-African and specifically Ghanaian cultural values, as well as for theatrical cultures around the world.
