Uses the life histories of women participants in the Tanganyika African National Union (TANU) to confront the biases, silences, and distortions found in existing histories of the period of Tanzania's nationalist movement. Focus is on Bibi Titi Mohamed, leader of the TANU Women's Section imprisoned for treason in the early 1970s. The women's life histories present different criteria for understanding Tanganyikan nationalism than those employed by nationalist histories of the period 1965-75. Includes b&w photos. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
