Synopsis

In Sensuous Knowledge, Minna Salami draws on Africa-centric, feminist-first and artistic traditions to help us rediscover inclusive and invigorating ways of experiencing the world afresh.



Combining the playfulness of a storyteller with the insight of a social critic, the book pries apart the systems of power and privilege that have dominated ways of thinking for centuries - and which have led to so much division, prejudice and damage. And it puts forward a new, sensuous, approach to knowledge: one grounded in a host of global perspectives - from Black Feminism to personal narrative, pop culture to high art, Western philosophy to African mythology - together comprising a vision of hope for a fragmented world riven by crisis.



Through the prism of this new knowledge, Salami offers fresh insights into the key cultural issues that affect women's lives. How are we to view Sisterhood, Motherhood or even Womanhood itself? What is Power and why do we conceive of Beauty? How does one achieve Liberation? She asks women to break free of the prison made by ingrained male-centric biases, and build a house themselves - a home that can nurture us all.













Sensuous Knowledge confirms Minna Salami as one the most important spokespeople of today, and the arrival of a blistering new literary voice.

Minna Salami is a blogger, and social critic, and lecturer. She is the founder of the multiple award-winning blog MsAfropolitan, and her work is published in numerous publications. She sits on the advisory board of the African Feminist Initiative at Pennsylvania State University and the editorial board of the Interdisciplinary Journal for the Study of the Sahel. Minna is listed as one of 12 women changing the world by ELLE Magazine. She lives in London and regularly visits the United States.
