Book Release From OYA’S TORNADO on Africana Divinity and Dynamism


Ọya’s Tornado is thrilled to mark its entry into the publishing arena with the release of two stunning new books by Dr. Teresa N. Washington:
Manifestations of Masculine Magnificence: Divinity in Africana Life, Lyrics, and Literature (416 pp)
 
Manifestations of Masculine Magnificence is a groundbreaking work: It is the first book to use the inherent divinity and divine inheritance of Africana men as the lens through which to analyze literature, lyrics, technologies, and philosophies by and about Black men. Washington’s meticulous two-part study offers a redefinition of manhood that is rich with both understated majesty and immense responsibilities.
Cloth ISBN:  9780991073023

The Architects of Existence: Àjẹ́ in Yoruba Cosmology, Ontology and Orature (318 pp)
The Architects of Existence undertakes an in-depth study of Àjẹ́’s impact in the Yoruba world. With chapters that delineate the role of Àjẹ́ in the founding of Yoruba civilization, in Yoruba semiotics, in Yoruba secret societies and sacred institutions, and in Yoruba Divinities and human beneficiaries, Washington offers abundant evidence that the Mothers are indeed the Architects of Existence.
