"Water to Swallow the Pill of Wisdom: Humour in African Proverbs"

The humour found in African proverbs is not merely intended to induce laughter or amusement. Rather, it is the water with which the pill of wisdom (proverbs) is swallowed.

Organized by the Department of AfroAmerican and African Studies, co-sponsored by the Center for World Performance Studies and the African Studies Center.
