Mariama Bâ

Mariama Ba
Mariama Ba was born in Dakar, Senegal, in 1929. She is celebrated as one of the most authentic and influential African authors of all time. A big portion of her literature focused on power, inequality, and gender. In her work, she often criticized African traditions that she deemed retrogressive, particularly since she was raised in an Islamic setting. Mariama died in 1981 before the release of her second novel, “Scarlet Song.” Although her writings were done in French, they have since been translated into several languages.
