The Hundred Wells of Salaga - Ayesha Harruna Attah

Staff Pick

Ayesha Harruna Attah masterfully weaves together a juxtaposition of a loved and lovely African land that was thoroughly torn apart by the precolonial slave trade. Aminah and Wurche lead extremely different lives, one of royalty and the other of slavery, but they are thrust into each other’s worlds at the height of tensions in a region coming to a boiling point. The struggles they endure and overcome together are a testament to the courage of these two women, as well as that of an entire land, in their effort to see their country as beautiful again.
