Abstract

African nations are undergoing change at a tremendous pace. Not only are their citizens losing a grip on their traditions, but the governments themselves find their political will severely tested by the challenges of change in which they are embroiled. The aim of this paper is to propose steps that would help researchers in Africa preserve one of their most cherished treasures—the oral literature—with modern technological tools that would not only protect the orality of the tradition but also ensure that it reaches as wide an audience as possible both inside and outside their countries.
