Publisher Description

My name is Geuleui Dji Jr. Im a mixed child. My mother is mixed, and my father is black from Ivory Coast, West Africa. I grew up in America raised by my Caucasian maternal grandmother, Carol. As a child growing up in America, the only connection I had with my father was the last name (Geuleui) we shared and a statuette my grandmother Carol gave me. A few months after my parents met, they got married and were both murdered in Ivory Coast, West Africa, while they attended a political event. My grandmother Carol explained to me that the statuette represented a god worshipped by my late father and his people.

The statuette became my childhood playmate, and at the same time, it gave me a sense of closeness to a father Ive never known physically or emotionally. As far as I can remember, my curiosity about the statuette started when my grandmother first gave me the statuette when I was around three years old. Unfortunately, my efforts to find out more about the statuette and my late father were met by resistance from my grandmother Carol.

The cloud surrounding my father and the statuette did not quench my curiosity; on the contrary, it amplified it. My quest to find out more about the statuette and my father led me to Ivory Coast, West Africa. There, I unfolded story of a god called Gobei the mask and, in the process, the complex relationship this god had with my fathers family (the Geuleuis) and his tribe (the Wobe people). My compelling findings have led me to write The Geuleuis Dynasty.
