    Half a Piece of Cloth

    the Courage of Africa’s Countless Widows


    The estimate is grim: thanks to HIV/AIDS, relentless wars, and the harsh realities of poverty, an estimated one in four women in Sub-Saharan Africa, or 63 million women in all, are widows. Many of them are young, have small children, and are desperately poor.

    Half a Piece of Cloth



    In Half a Piece of Cloth, the Courage of Africa’s Countless Widows, author Jane L. Crane exposes the daily realities these women face. In this reader-friendly book, Crane examines the plight of nearly 60 widows in seven different African countries, giving first-hand accounts from widows who survived the genocide in Rwanda, ran from the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, survived the "rape capital of the world" in the Democratic Republic of Congo, fought for their land in Zambia, and cope with HIV/AIDS in a black township in South Africa.

    Half a Piece of Cloth also documents how cultural factors and superstitions often compound the widows’ suffering, putting their children at great risk for little or no education and a life of poverty and despair. Among other atrocities, widows in multiple African countries are blamed for their husbands’ death, stripped of assets, at times subjected to dehumanizing widowhood rituals, and are frequently left desperate, without welfare or other safety nets.

    Part I of Half a Piece of Cloth tells the widows’ stories. Part II offers solutions – among them education, economic empowerment, and individual, grassroots, and other efforts to bring about change – with the goal of helping Africa’s widows to have a full and satisfying life, or what Crane calls "a whole piece of cloth."

    She comments, "When I heard a speaker from Zambia at the United Nations describe the horrors that widows go through culturally after the death of a husband, my life was changed. Eventually, I traveled to Africa multiple times to see for myself. Half a Piece of Cloth is the result."

    "[Half a Piece of Cloth is]…in tune with the African way of telling stories. Once I started reading, it was hard to put down." ~ Emily Onyango, Dean of Students, St. Paul’s University, Limuru, Kenya

    AUTHOR: Through her graduate work on women’s land issues in Sub-Saharan Africa, Jane L. Crane discovered the desperate situation of widows in that region, a topic that has been largely ignored. After interviewing dozens of desperate widows in Africa, she founded Adopt A Widow. Similar to a sponsored-child program, Adopt A Widow helps African widows learn a skill to support themselves and their children in a one-year program while experiencing emotional healing. The author of the "Map for Gender Reconciliation," she holds a Master’s degree in Peace and Justice and is currently working on her doctorate in Oxford, England, on Africa’s widows. Born in Augusta, Georgia, she was raised in the tender care of African-American maids and babysitters, to whom she dedicates the book. Today, she lives in San Diego, California, and travels to Africa regularly.

    We were recently contacted by a business in New Zealand requesting our products & services.

    We are a company in Wanaka, New Zealand looking into "Tosheka". For months we have been searching for an organic material as we are trying to make a 100% organic range of lingerie; we therefore need a sophisticated, luxurious but also pliable/comfortable material. We are seriously interested and enthused about creating a product that is sustainable and ethical too (exactly what you seem to be showing yourselves as!). We are a young start-up company and are interested in being a part of your service. We have recently been recognised by our local Chamber of Commerce as a company with high growth potential and have been awarded a funding grant to help us establish our chain or production. We have designs, the capital and now we are just looking to find contacts to source our material and help us manufacture our product to our high specifications.

    We would love to hear back from you, especially if you able to help through our production process; sourcing the organic materials, spinning, weaving/knitting, dyeing/finishing and the cutting/sewing.

    SOFT VENGEANCE: ALBIE SACHS AND THE NEW SOUTH AFRICA


    Directed by Abby Ginzberg (70 mins)

    SOFT VENGEANCE is a film about Albie Sachs, a lawyer, writer, art lover and freedom fighter, set against the dramatic events leading to the overthrow of the apartheid regime in South Africa. As a young man, Albie defended those committed to ending apartheid in South Africa. For his actions as a lawyer, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement in Cape Town, tortured through sleep deprivation and forced into exile. In 1988 he was blown up by a car bomb set by the South African security forces in Maputo, Mozambique, which cost him his right arm and the sight of one eye, but miraculously he survived and after a long year of rehabilitation in England, he recovered. Returning to South Africa following the release of Nelson Mandela, Albie helped write the new Constitution and was then appointed as one of the first 11 judges to the new Constitutional Court, which for the past two decades has been insuring that the rights of all South Africans are afforded protection. http://www.softvengeancefilm.org/MAIN.html

    The film is produced by Abby Ginzberg and executive produced by Oscar-Nominated actress Alfre Woodard who also serves as the narrator.

    THE RESCUERS


    THE RESCUERS, the latest film from Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Michael King, uncovers the largely unknown stories of 13 heroic and courageous diplomats who, at tremendous personal cost, saved tens of thousands of Jews during World War II. The film follows Stephanie Nyombayire, a young Rwandan anti-genocide activist who lost 100 members of her family in the Rwandan Genocide of the 1990s, and Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned 20th century and Holocaust historian, as they travel across 15 countries and three continents interviewing survivors and descendants of the diplomats. Nyombayire and Gilbert explore and contemplate the past in a quest, in part, to understand what should be done to stop the ongoing genocide in Darfur and elsewhere.

    GOD LOVES UGANDA

    - GOD LOVES UGANDA Investigates the Troubling Influence of American Evangelicals on Human Rights in Africa.

    On DVD May 19 Coinciding with the National Public Broadcasting Premiere iTunes Exclusive Premiere on April 19th -


    As a specialist in civil society, leadership development, and strategy from an African perspective, he has become the foremost internationally recognized expert and author on this topic. A sought-after pioneer and a thought leader, he has successfully introduced the value of indigenous proverbial principles to the business class, as well as for achieving personal growth and development.

    GOD LOVES UGANDA
    83 minutes, documentary, color, 2013
     GOD LOVES UGANDA


    A film by Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams

    With God Loves Uganda, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams explores the role of the American Evangelical movement in fueling Uganda's terrifying turn towards biblical law and the proposed death penalty for homosexuality. Thanks to charismatic religious leaders and a well-financed campaign, these draconian new laws and the politicians that peddle them are winning over the Ugandan public. But these dangerous policies and the money that fuels them aren't coming from Africa; they're being imported from some of America's largest megachurches.

    Using vérité, interviews, and hidden camera footage, the film allows American religious leaders and their young missionaries that make up the "front lines in a battle for billions of souls" to explain their positions in their own words. Shocking and enlightening, touching and horrifying, God Loves Uganda will leave you questioning just how closely this brand of Christianity resembles the one you think you know.

    Celebrating African Textile Arts at the Currier Museum of Art

    - Manchester, NH – For centuries, textiles have played a central role in the history and cultural life of people from regions throughout Africa. Africa Interweave: Textile Diasporas at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, N.H. from September 28, 2013 through January 12, 2014, will explore the breadth of this dynamic art form through both traditional works and contemporary innovations. -

    Exhibition Overview

    Cloth has long been used across the African continent to signify cultural identity, political power, religious belief and economic status. The works in Africa Interweave will highlight local customs and explore how regional and global cultural exchange and commercial interests from abroad have affected production, aesthetic choices and uses of textiles among people in different parts of Africa.

    Africa Interweave includes more than 40 textiles made in the last 100 years, including stunning full-length ceremonial costumes, designer garments and symbolic flags. Drawn primarily from the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art collection at the University of Florida, Gainesville, and organized by Dr. Susan Cooksey, the Harn’s Curator of African Art, these works are among the most striking examples of this art form. Tailored garments, including full-sized masquerade costumes, are shown alongside garments typically worn wrapped around the body. These large-scale textiles are displayed stretched from floor to ceiling to reveal their expert construction and detailed symbolic embellishments. One woman’s skirt made from natural raffia palm fibers by the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of Congo, measures almost 20 feet long.

    Many innovative textile artists represented in the show provide a contemporary update to longstanding techniques such as resist-dyeing, embroidery and hand-weaving. A festive ceremonial cloth from the workshop of master Ghanaian weaver Samuel Cophie combines strip-woven kente with large appliqued adinkra symbols, which are traditionally stamped onto a cloth typically reserved for funerals. A resist-dyed scarf in the show by Malian-French textile artist Aboubakar Fofana reveals this artist’s role in revitalizing the use of natural indigo and environmentally conscious dyeing practices in place of synthetic dyes introduced to Africa in the 1800s.

    Textiles have also influenced contemporary artists working in other media. Achamyeleh Debela’s digital print The Priest (1990-91), which features a dizzying swirl of color around a man’s head, was inspired by the artist’s childhood memory of ceremonial processionals in which Ethiopian Christian Orthodox priests donned vibrant costumes.

    Textiles and Cultural Interchange
    Africa Interweave reveals how artisans from across the African continent have adjusted their techniques and designs in response to a variety of internal and external forces. President Barack Obama’s visit to Ghana in summer 2009 is celebrated in a commemorative cloth that a local manufacturer produced as an expression of solidarity between the two countries.

    Likewise manufacturers from abroad have produced cloth to accommodate African markets. On view is a commercially printed cloth made in Europe in 1939 that commemorates an earthquake that had taken place in Accra, Ghana, and was later sold in Accra’s markets. Another fabric type, kanga, from Ethiopia, is a distinctly East African textile that has elements informed by printed handkerchiefs from Portugal, England, the Netherlands and Switzerland. It is an example of how styles introduced from regions around the globe from India to Europe were adapted by local craftspersons, and highlights the dynamic history of African textiles.

    Africa Interweave features a lavish masquerade costume from the Calabari Ekpe society in present-day Nigeria, which has a 500-year history of successful international trade. During public initiations and other ceremonies, the imported cloth used to make this elaborate costume would reveal the wealth and status of the wearer. Damask from Europe was once the cloth of choice for such garments, but when this outfit was made in 2010, cloth manufactured with metallic dots was in fashion.

    This exhibition is organized by the Harn Museum of Art and made possible by Michael and Donna Singer, the Harn 20th Anniversary Fund, the 1923 Fund, the Center for African Studies, the Dr. Madelyn M.

    Award-winning filmmaker Anne Aghion

    - Anne is the director and producer of a total of six films. Her main achievement is a series of four films shot over more than a decade on the justice and social reconstruction process in Rwanda in the aftermath of the 1994 genocide. “My Neighbor My Killer”, and the companion trilogy of shorter films which form the Gacaca Series, are widely regarded as the definitive visual treatment of the complexities of life in post-genocide rural Rwanda. -

    MY NEIGHBOR MY KILLER
    2009; 80 minutes
    Official Selection - Cannes Film Festival (2009)
    Best Documentary Nominee - Gotham Awards (2009)
    Winner - Human Rights Watch Nestor Almendros Award for courage in filmmaking (2009)
    Best Documentary - Montréal Black Film Festival (2010)

    When peace comes, how do you make it right again?
    An epic journey in search of co-existence in Rwanda. Could you ever forgive the people who slaughtered your family? In 1994, hundreds of thousands of Rwandan Hutus were incited to wipe out the country's Tutsi minority. From the crowded capital to the smallest village, local 'patrols' massacred lifelong friends and family members, most often with machetes and improvised weapons. Announced in 2001, and ending in 2012, the government put in place the Gacaca Tribunals — open-air hearings with citizen-judges meant to try their neighbors and rebuild the nation. As part of this experiment in reconciliation, confessed genocide killers are sent home from prison, while traumatized survivors are asked to forgive them and resume living side-by-side. Filming for close to a decade in a tiny hamlet, award-winning filmmaker Anne Aghion has charted the impact of Gacaca on survivors and perpetrators alike. Through their fear and anger, accusations and defenses, blurry truths, inconsolable sadness, and hope for life renewed, she captures the emotional journey to coexistence.


    Gacaca, Living together again in Rwanda?
    Part 1 of the Gacaca Trilogy
    2003; 55 minutes

    Unesco Fellini Prize (2003) In 1994, the genocide that took place in Rwanda claimed over 800,000 lives in less than three months. Eight years later, the first film in this award-winning trilogy, "GACACA, Living together again in Rwanda?" follows the first steps in one of the world's boldest experiments in reconciliation: the Gacaca (Ga-TCHA-tcha) Tribunals. These are a new form of citizen-based justice aimed at unifying this country of 8 million people. "GACACA, Living together again in Rwanda?" goes directly to the emotional core of the story, talking one-on-one with survivors and accused killers alike, who, side by side, have to face the preliminaries of this "justice under the trees".


    In Rwanda We Say...The Family that does not speak dies
    Part 2 of the Gacaca Trilogy
    2004; 52 minutes

    Emmy Award for News and Documentary (2005)
    The second film of this trilogy, shot two years after the first one in the same hillside community, continues Anne Aghion's quest to learn how, and whether, people can overcome fear, hatred and deep emotional scars, to forge a common future after genocide. Ten years after the 1994 genocide, as close to 16,000 suspects, still untried, are released across the country: having confessed to their crimes, and served the maximum sentence the Gacaca will eventually impose, they are sent home to plow fields and fetch water alongside the people they are accused of victimizing. "IN RWANDA WE SAY... The family that does not speak dies" focuses on the release of one suspect, and the effect of his return on this tiny hillside hamlet. What unfolds is an astonishing testament to the liberating power of speech: little by little, people begin to talk in a profound and articulate way—first to the camera, and then to each other—as these neighbors negotiate the emotional task of accepting life side by side.


    The Notebooks of Memory
    Part 3 of the Gacaca Trilogy
    2009; 53 minutes

    On a lush green Rwandan hillside, more than a decade after the 1994 genocide wiped out the Tutsi population, the small rural community of Gafumba finally gathers on the grass over and over again for the Gacaca trials, a unique experiment in justice meant to bring unity back to this nation. In "THE NOTEBOOKS OF MEMORY," the third film of the trilogy, Anne Aghion spends three years following the process, as a tribunal of local citizen-judges weighs survivor accounts of the massacres against the testimony of perpetrators who barter confessions for reduced prison sentences. Survivors and perpetrators have been living together for several years now, and the beginning of the trials mark the end of a long wait for justice and reconciliation.

    Ngoma Africa Band, a German based Tanzanian band is now one of the oldest and most successful Africans bands in Germany.


    - Many African bands in Europe hardly survive for more than a year. Yet Ngoma Africa Band, founded by Ebrahim Makunja aka Ras Makunja in 1993, is still growing stronger. -

    The band plays "Bongo Dance", which is a unique combination of traditional and modern Tanzanian rhythms with Soukous and Rumba. All theirs songs are in Kiswahili.

    Ngoma Africa Band



    Ngoma Africa Band has released several successful hits including “Mama Kimwaga” (Sugar Mummy), “Anti-Corruption Squad” and “Apache wacha Pombe” (Stop over drinking).

    In 2010 Ngoma Africa Band released a single in praise of Tanzania’s President Jakaya Kikwete. The song titled “Jakaya Kikwete 2010” praises Mr. Kikwete’s good leadership skills and commitment to fight corruption.

    On 12th August 2012, Ngoma Africa Band received the International Diaspora Award (IDA) at the International African Festival Tubingen 2012, Germany, for their hard work in promoting East African music throughout Europe.

    Ms. Susan Muyang Tatah, CEO of the International African Festival Tubingen 2012 said Ngoma Africa Band was also chosen for the Award because of their creative performance on stage. It’s difficult to resist dancing at their concerts, she said.

    This year the band released a new CD titled "Bongo Tambarare" featuring "Supu ya Mawe" and "Uhuru wa Habari". The new release is already dominating air waves in Tanzania.

    "Supu ya Mawe" advices the listeners to work hard and be patient while pursuing their objectives in life. It also appeals for generosity towards the needy.

    "Uhuru wa Habari" praises African journalists who are bold enough to speak out the truth in environments where freedom of speech is quite limited.

    Ngoma Africa Band is famous for staging thrilling shows in festivals in different parts of Europe. The band’s joyful female dancers, wearing traditional costumes and dancing vigorously to their tunes, always leave fans asking for more.

    Ngoma Africa Band is composed of talented young musicians including soloist Christian Bakotessa aka Chris-B, Said Vuai, Matondo Benda, Jonathan Sousa, Aj Nbongo, Richard Makutima, Bedi Beraca "Bella" and Jessy Ouyah.

    Acclaimed African film Ijé (The Journey) to be released in North America on Amazon and iTunes December 4


    - “Ijé breaks into our fears, our dreams, our hopes and manages to make music of our nightmares – a heart-rending hum.” – Nigerian Entertainment Today -

    On December 4, 2012, America will finally have the chance to view one of Africa's most popular films, Ijé (The Journey), featuring two of its biggest box office stars, Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Ekeinde, seen onscreen together for the first time.

    “Ijé

    Opening to rave reviews when it premiered in 2010, Ijé was an instant box office hit in Nigeria, selling almost as many tickets as “Avatar.” The film went on to win top prizes at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, the Canada International Film Festival, Hawaii International Film Festival, Arizona Black Film Showcase, Las Vegas International Film Festival, and Mexico International Film Festival, among others.

    Ijé is the story of two sisters who chose radically divergent paths in life, each one influenced differently by a childhood of poverty and violence. Against her father's wishes, Anya (Ekeinde) moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming a recording artist. Chioma (Nnaji) remained behind in Nigeria, making her profession in the banking industry. Neither has seen each other for years when Ana is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the death of her husband, a successful record producer, and two strangers he brought home to their Hollywood Hills mansion. It soon surfaces that she is mysteriously withholding vital details that could acquit her. Chioma and Anya’s new attorney, Jalen Turner (Ulrich Que), have only hours to solve the mystery before the trial begins.

    “Ijé is the story of a sister’s love, but most importantly it reveals the repressed voice of many women across Africa,” writes Joy Isi Bewaji for Nigerian Entertainment Today. “Ijé brings to the fore some important themes in today’s world, including love, racism, culture, stigma and life as an immigrant in a foreign country….This movie also highlights the culture of shame and silence and the stigma attached to rape and rape victims. Indeed a clash of two cultures, social attitudes towards rape and rape victims in the Nigerian society threaten to banish Anya to the American prison for the rest of her life,” explains Nigerian critic Gbenga Awomodu.

    Directed and produced by Nigerian-born Chineze Anyaene, Ijé has had a major influence on Nigeria's Nollywood film industry, notably the second largest in the world. “Since the inception of filmmaking in Nigeria 15 years ago, the world has been waiting for one Nollywood film that stands apart from the rest, one that will capture the minds and hearts of movie-goers worldwide, one that will leave a timeless memory, capable of illustrating the creativity, tradition, and essence of Nigerian culture. Ijé is that movie,” noted Nairaland upon its debut.

    As of December 4, 2012, Ijé can be streamed from Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, and the Global African TV website. DVDs can also be purchased from Amazon.com (U.S.) and Amazon.com (Canada). For more information, go to www.globalafricantv.com.

    Ijé is being distributed in North America by Global African TV, which was recently founded to bring the best of mainstream African cinema to audiences in North America. Despite Africa's prominence as the second largest film industry in the world, indigenous films made by and featuring black talent have rarely been available for viewing in the U.S. and Canada—except through specialty in areas with large immigrant populations.

    THE NGOMA AFRICA BAND


    - Ngoma Africa Band, a German based Tanzanian band is now one of the oldest and most successful Africans bands in Germany. -

    Many African bands in Europe hardly survive for more than a year. Yet Ngoma Africa Band, founded by Ebrahim Makunja aka Ras Makunja in 1993, is still growing stronger. The band plays "Bongo Dance", which is a unique combination of traditional and modern Tanzanian rhythms with Soukous and Rumba. All theirs songs are in Kiswahili.

    Ngoma Africa Band

    Ngoma Africa Band has released several successful hits including “Mama Kimwaga” (Sugar Mummy), “Anti-Corruption Squad” and “Apache wacha Pombe” (Stop over drinking).

    In 2010 Ngoma Africa Band released a single in praise of Tanzania’s President Jakaya Kikwete. The song titled “Jakaya Kikwete 2010” praises Mr. Kikwete’s good leadership skills and commitment to fight corruption.

    On 12th August 2012, Ngoma Africa Band received the International Diaspora Award (IDA) at the International African Festival Tubingen 2012, Germany, for their hard work in promoting East African music throughout Europe. Ms. Susan Muyang Tatah, CEO of the International African Festival Tubingen 2012 said Ngoma Africa Band was also chosen for the Award because of their creative performance on stage. It’s difficult to resist dancing at their concerts, she said.

    This year the band released a new CD titled "Bongo Tambarare" featuring "Supu ya Mawe" and "Uhuru wa Habari". The new release is already dominating air waves in Tanzania. "Supu ya Mawe" advices the listeners to work hard and be patient while pursuing their objectives in life. It also appeals for generosity towards the needy.

    Ngoma Africa Band

    "Uhuru wa Habari" praises African journalists who are bold enough to speak out the truth in environments where freedom of speech is quite limited. Ngoma Africa Band is famous for staging thrilling shows in festivals in different parts of Europe. The band’s joyful female dancers, wearing traditional costumes and dancing vigorously to their tunes, always leave fans asking for more.

    Ngoma Africa Band is composed of talented young musicians including soloist Christian Bakotessa aka Chris-B, Said Vuai, Matondo Benda, Jonathan Sousa, A-Jay, Richard Makutima, Bedi Beraca "Bella" and Jessy Ouyah. For further information about Ngoma Africa Band and to listen to their music, please visit www.ngoma-africa.com and be connected at contact@ngoma-africa.com.

    “Yefon” The Movie


    - A young African woman with dreams of becoming a teacher takes reading and writing lessons from a visiting American. But when the male village elders find out, she is sentenced to death for breaking from tradition. -

    “Yefon” is a film that continues in the proud tradition of socially conscious, Africa-based cinema like “Hotel Rwanda,” “Beat the Drum” and “Sarafina”—but unlike those movies, its producers will come from the ranks of generous Kickstarter supporters: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/405663859/yefon-the-movie

    It has already attracted the attention of Hollywood stars like Jimmy Jean-Louise (“Tears of the Sun” “Heroes”), Adriana Barraza (Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee, “Babel”) and Hakeem Kae-Kazim (“Hotel Rwanda”). The film is being co-produced by Justin Massion, the director of the Kickstarter campaign for “Space Command,” which brought in $75,000 in just three days, and ended with over $200,000.

    “Yefon” is the brainchild of 22-year-old actress and filmmaker Sahndra Fon Dufe, who got her inspiration from too many similar, true stories from Africa. Broken-hearted by this sad reality, she and the production team have pledged to use a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the film, a companion documentary, books and related merchandise to build an all-girls school in Nso, the Cameroon village where “Yefon” is set.

    Yefon


    There are just days left to reach the goal of $50,000, so we would be honored if you would post about it on BlackRefer.com. Please let me know your thoughts, thanks for your consideration!

    JOURNEY OF HOPE OR DESTINY


    Greetings:
    I am pleased to bring to your attention a topical fictional JOURNEY OF HOPE OR DESTINY, which for convenience, adopts Yoruba/African philosophical worldview to narrate a story that reflects the global influence of social construct of races and skin color particularly in the West. This illuminating piece of modern history portrays a comprehensive image of the Yoruba/African man’s intrinsic cultural perspective, values, and virtues, whilst the multiracial characters each searches for individual answers in the journey of life and hoping for compensations in their final destiny.

    It incorporates additional features and commentaries on the conditions of the society’s social ills that plague it, a leadership-induced lack of self-belief since the discovery of crude oil and a senseless civil war. Nonetheless, the erring leadership was not the same that toiled for and won the political independence, but rather, the leadership of rapacious looters who are nothing more than uniformed, inheritors’ class, untutored, oppressive, and temperamentally unsuited for political governance, that assumed the reign of power for the lucre. It is my firm confidence that you will find the story quite illuminating.

    The stylized novel is published on Amazon Kindle eBook, and allows you to read on Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Mac, and PC.

    JOURNEY OF HOPE OR DESTINY


    Please visit: http://www.amazon.com/JOURNEY-DESTINY-Phenomenon-refuses-ebook/dp/B007PKQS4U/ref=pd_rhf_se_p_img_1

    I hope you will introduce this insightful eBook to your friends, observers and particullarly students in African and African American Studies programs for its reflection of the modern-day involuntary migration of highly educated Africans back to the West. With appreciation and best regards.
