Have you ever wondered how Africa really was like outside historic descriptions? If so, Bound by Kente is the book to read. It takes you through five short stories in five time periods. The Stories are "Bound by Kente," "Esi and the Jeweled Wig of the Fanti Land," "The Last Harvest," "Bra (An African Slave Story)" and "Maame Odo's Savior." From love to hatred, pain to suffering, Bound by Kente describes the uniqueness of Africa and shows what divides and unites us as a people. Bound by Kente inspires and encourages unity, love, and power in the African continent.

The author presents her journey openly and off ers a cogent immigrants perspective of a Black womans search for purpose in America. In this book, Patricia Charles, an immigrant from Trinidad, is unashamed to share her experiences in America. It is bold and purposeful defying a life without meaning, and her employers oppressive machinations.... -The Rev. Dr. G. Derek Neriah Paul-Adjunct Professor of Religious Studies. According to Patricia Charles this book is about the voice of an ordinary African American woman, my story, my dreams, my reality and my unequivocal faith in God and His purpose for my life. The author reflects on her own personal experience as a black immigrant, and her encounter with our societys diverse sociopolitical, economic, and cultural institutional structure. Her narrative is a reminder of the nightmares and struggles immigrants have to endure in order to achieve the American Dream. - Professor Grigoris Argeros- Professor of Sociology at Lehman College.
