Bilonda Mbiye, Overcoming Traditional Boundaries
This book, BILONDA MBIYE, started as a personal conversation between mother and daughter; a mother telling stories about her childhood within a cultural setting. This labor of love expresses the emotional journey of a young girl, who became a mother, grandmother, then great-grandmother,
as she reflects on the habits and traditions of her community. This is also a story about interactions between different social groups in the region of her birth, Congo-Kinshasa.
Written words expressing the mind set, memories and perspective of an African woman during that period in history, are rare. BILONDA MBIYE, an African woman, guarantor of the education of children and guardian of traditions, chooses in this text to transmit the secular values that she has inherited to the next generations. It is to hear her voice that this book was written.
