Mama Mabinty

Mama Mabinty was a local artisan. Across the road from us and behind her house she crafted wax prints on the European imported cloth.  In this photo she is showing the process while a student of ours named Aminata Lahai is helping out.  Mama Mabinty was both Mende and Susu and was Aminata's aunt. Taken in 1969. In the back is also a Teacher's Training student of ours named Cecilia Jah. - double click on image to enlarge it -
