Professor Mhoze Chikowero‘s new book, African Music, Power, and Being in Colonial Zimbabwe, reveals the role of music in the subjugation and liberation of African culture.
“It’s not just a book about music,” Chikowero said. “It’s more of a history through music. As a historian I’m interested in archives, I’m interested in sources, I’m interested in how we can use indigenous knowledge systems to write history, and this is a good example of that.”
