At the same time, even social-scientific studies of the arts have overwhelmingly emphasized critique, heritage preservation, and cultural appreciation. As such, issues relating to arts and empowerment are more often addressed by political or civic organizations rather than scholars. Here, both are combined in a fascinating look at how these often overlooked elements promote social equality and cultivate personal agency across Africa's diverse political-economic landscapes"--
