You might wonder: ‘could these stories be true experiences of the author?Yes
or
No,
it doesn’t matter.

The words in the texts that Bodé Owa has written for Intimate Negrociations are not cloaked in any glamorous gowns, they are bare naked. They release a reality which confronts without aggressive shouting or fierce moralising.

 

/// reference ///

Bodé is passionate about social justice and equity, about his culture and continent, about the world. It is very obvious in this book which contains  love notes to Africa,  and which, though filled with humor,  doesn’t shy away from uncomfortable topics like racism and the continuing legacies of colonialism. Negrociations  invites us into its writer's rage and into  his passion,  and challenges us  to  work for a better world.
