Preservation of (African) Intangible Cultural Heritage is an important part of healthy and sustainable progress of rural communities in Africa

Preservation of (African) Intangible Cultural Heritage is an important part of healthy and sustainable progress of rural communities in Africa. Experience at Vision Community Radio Macha indicates that radio provides a platform for dissemination of cultural knowledge and wisdom in a community that operates mainly in primary orality. It focuses on the customs, traditional buildings, and intangible cultural heritage of one of the major tribal groups in Kenya, the Luo.

The book discusses the question: 'How should Africa's cultural heritage be preserved?' Scholars and museum professionals from Africa, Europe, America and Japan clarify the significance of 'Cultural Heritage' for African people in postcolonial Africa. They also explore how scholars and museum professionals outside Africa can support African colleagues in handing down their cultural legacy to future generations

The outflow of archaeological or artistic work from Africa, together with the ways of exhibiting African treasures outside Africa, are emerging as serious issues both in political and ethical terms. They are typified by a series of hot disputes concerning the legality of the exhibition of Nok terracotta pieces from Nigeria in the Louvre. Meanwhile in Africa, there has been an upsurge of active efforts by many ethnic groups - in Mali, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, South Africa and elsewhere - to create or re-create their own cultures by reviewing their cultural legacy. The book discusses the question: 'How should Africa's cultural heritage be preserved?' Scholars and museum professionals from Africa, Europe, America and Japan clarify the significance of 'Cultural Heritage' for African people in postcolonial Africa. They also explore how scholars and museum professionals outside Africa can support African colleagues in handing down their cultural legacy to future generations.
