The editors present a fascinating and original contribution to the field, and a wide range of perspectives on African languages, literatures and cultures. --Kizitus Mpoche, University of Douala, CameroonThis edited book examines the crucial role still played by African languages in pedagogy and literatures in the 21st century, generating insights into how they effectively serve cultural needs across the African continent and beyond.
