    "That the highest work, a bringing together of the people, will take centuries. You have been told you belong to one told you they are but a small fragment of one community that misfortune blew apart. Of that exploded community...all these are merely scattered pieces of what once came together.
    The Akan was once something whole; a people that knew only one name we seldom he! ar these days: the community of Black people."
    "The Healers" by Ayi Kwei Armah
