Gina Campbell asked:

Does anyone have the passage (or at least the page # of it) of the explanation of the translation of "mbele ache?" Trying to dig back through but having a hard time remembering where it is...

Cylia Kamp This response is probably way too late, but I just noticed the question today when I was moving some of my reviews to my personal computer. Anyway the explanation of the translation of "mbele ache" can be found on page 271. Also Alice Walker signs the author's note with "mbele ache" on page 283.
