    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Just curious what peoples opinions are here - what novels or plays were Africans writing while Shakespeare was writing that would make modern day people really think about things.

    I really like "Utend̠i wa Tambuka or Utenzi wa Tambuka ("The Story of Tambuka"), also known as Kyuo kya Hereḳali (the book of Heraclius), is an epic poem in the Swahili language, dated 1728. It is one of the earliest known documents in Swahili.

    I see Matthew must of gotten out of bed but he left his sheet on, he cut out little eye holes and decided to wear the white sheet all day.
    Here's a picture of Matthew taken earlier today.

    Just because something is written doesn't mean it's a compliment to Shakespeare. That poem is shit. And, the author is likely an Arab, not an afro-shit.
