Overview


A little Nigerian girl describes her village and the way it is divided into ogbos, or age groups. Each ogbo is assigned to a different task, from that of her brother’s, which helps sweep the village clean, to her grandfather’s, which spreads words of wisdom to everyone. Bright, framed color photos show daily life and special occasions, from the narrator’s father with his ogbo building a nursery school to her mother performing at a festival. This exciting and acclaimed photo-essay is based on the author’s own experiences growing up in a similar setting.
