Sister Eva Speaks Real Independence

“We have this church in the village. We have this church. The walls make out of mud, the roof with carrat leaves; a single hut with no steeple or cross or acolytes or white priests or Latin ceremonies. BUT IT IS OWN….. BLACK PEOPLE OWN IT”

-Sister Eva, in Earl Lovelace’s The Wine of Astonishment (Heinemann, 1983) p.32
