Ogundiran deploys a cultural-historical approach to pose new questions on how
the Yoruba as historical subject created their own epistemology, new eras of
aspirational values and principle, and conceptions of honor and respectability.”
— Saheed Aderinto, author of Guns and Society in Colonial Nigeria

“community of practice” that will change the ways we think about Yorùbá history and culture and become a seminal source for present and future scholars.”

and African Diaspora Arts, University of Wisconsin-Madison
