FragmentsBook - 1970 1969
A member of the African elite groping his way out of the background of slavery and colonialism, Baako sees his education as preparation for the lifework of a socially innovative artist. His family, more pragmatic, expects an elite resume to convert into power and wealth in the real world here and now. Unable to harmonize contervailing needs with wider social aspirations, both family and individual drift toward confrontation and inexorable loss.
