THE NIGERIAN CULTURE, POVERTY AND CIVILIZATION: THE IGBO EXPERIENCE

AUTHOR: OKEKE, IFEOMA

FROM: THE DIGNITY OF A FRENCH TEACHER: CELEBRATING PROF. JULIE AGBASIERE

The analysis of issues that affect Igbo culture, poverty and civilization and the process of development cannot be fully comprehended and appreciated without proper and critical evaluation and metacognition of the Igbo entity. Igbo cultural studies must consider cross – cultural dynamics, structures, systems and other variables that contribute to sustainable development in order for the society to thrive. Cultural development, maintenance and growth are fundamental to all aspects of determining and improving livelihood across the region. This paper is intended to show how civilization has changed the Igbo cultural life and alleviated poverty among the teeming Igbo race. The issues of quality of life and quality of cultural output are acknowledged and addressed in considering the role that art and culture have in improving livelihood across the Igbo land. Civilization as a change agent has contributed in no small measure in poverty alleviation/reduction.
