Abstract

G. Bumawu Fiawoo I. Tall Drums at My Birth Drums, Tall drums Of my people my birth. Were sounding at I hear them still- Not sensually, But silently. In this silence I love the drums; They remind me of my birth. * * All photos in this piece are by Griffith Davis, the Griffith Davis Collection of Photographs of Liberia, 1948-1952, Moorland-Spingarn Research Center, Howard University.
