    It might take me a while, but this is something I am deeply passionate about. Our people don't even really understand how much our tastes have been created and manufactured (word to Dr. Amos Wilson.) Any then on top of that, the expressions of those tastes, its just tragic. From what I read of the Table of Contents this looks a little bit larger than the individual artist but it is definitely going to be deeply informative. Thanks!

    All good breh :salute: yeah it's a big deal, indeed on how taste is fomed but even just the fact of knowing that a big part of your art, and thus history, isn't even available in your own country...and also, at a more down to earth level, giving inspiration to newer generations so that they have something to build upon.
