ABC of All the Questions We Never Dare Ask
edited by Kwela Books, Weaver Press
In many countries in Africa the role of aunts and uncles has been displaced, traditional cultural practises have been eroded, and not a great deal has taken their place as a source of information about relationships, sex, gender, and the human body. The ABC of all the question we never dare to ask will help to fill this gap. Designed around actual questions asked by young people in southern Africa, it is an up-to-date source of information on all the major issues that affect their lives. The book is, however, not only for the youth. Teachers and parents will find it valuable as the book not only answers very specific, often personal questions that trouble our young people, it also touches on cultural values and practices that underpin our societies – some of which need to be reinforced, and others more openly discussed.
