Description


Why is the Osu caste system, a form of discrimination, still deep-seated in Igboland? Are the civil and human rights of the Osu not being violated? How does the system affect global perception on Igbo culture and her civilization? The Osu Caste Discrimination in Igboland: Impact on Igbo Culture and Civilization, which is sequel to The Osu Caste System in Igboland: A Challenge for Nigerian Democracy, describes the pain, grief and agony of those groaning under the Osu caste system in Igboland. The system ascribes an inferior Osu status to the group and limits their social interaction, marriage contracts and relationship of love with the Diala. Consequently, their daily lives are tormented by the associated Osu stigma, which hinders their social mobility and progress. Any person reading this book should reflect critically on the issue and join hands to dismantle the system for justice, fairness and social progress.
