ayi kwei armah: "awakening" pt1

"Awakening.  Now if we are concerned with our awakening, it is because we’ve been asleep. Now we were put to sleep by historical catastrophes. And you know when people get into an accident; they need to go to sleep in order to survive the accident. If you are totally conscious when it happens, you won’t survive. So sleep is sometimes useful. But after sleep we have to wake."  Ayi Kwei Armah

I was first introduced to this brother's work via Akala's "Maangamizi": http://tmblr.co/ZoUsLx1h4639Y
