A member of the African elite groping its way out of the background
of slavery and colonialism, Baako see his education as preparation
for the lifework of a socially innovative artist. his family, more
pragmatic, expects an elite resume to convert into power and wealth
in the real world here and now. Unable to harmonize countervailing
needs with wider social aspirations, both family and individual drift
toward confrontation and inexorable loss.
