News at Eleven: At birth, it is the voice of the woman

a baby hears. She sings the baby lullabies and tells tales. She sings folklores and recites appellations. The woman is the first poet every child in Africa knows but we grow and the situation changes. What killed that genuine appetite for creativity in our mothers? Was it that they were not given enough space or the more laborious works denied them of much fruitful exploration of the art they already created and knew?
