Ah Jubah! A PleaPrayerPromise is a revolution in ink. This rich curvilinear novel chronicles the emergence of six collectives who unite through time and space for the liberation and elevation the Pan African world.
Ah Jubah! features Kandace and Cynthia who open a soul food restaurant that specializes in the culinary culling of racist oppressors; Azure and Alteveze who unite warring gangs, convert projects into quilombos, and introduce local authorities to the precision of divine retribution; and Orisa Oya and the Egbe Aje who preside over Edan’s global tribunal for the prosecution of crimes against humanity. These are only three examples of the liberatory works enacted by warriors who revolutionize the concept of revolution.
Ah Jubah! offers a dynamic reconceptualization and resuscitation of such revolutionary Black organizations as Ogboni Ibile, the Deacons for Defense, and the Black Liberation Army. The novel also builds on and expands the literary revolutionary impetus of Sam Greenlee’s The Spook Who Sat By The Door, the Seven Days of Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon, and the society of the ankh of Ayi Kwei Armah’s Osiris Rising.
Asiri Odu’s stunning debut novel spans from the dawn of time to the immediate future to offer its audience a blueprint for holistic empowerment for nearly every era, condition, and dilemma.
