We have read chapters 1 and 4 of Kenneth Lynch’s Rural-Urban Interactions.  We have screened an African film, Zan Boko, on urbanization.  We have read a substantial part of Emecheta’s Joys of Motherhood.  We have completed a learning exercise on life in Sub-Saharan Africa’s largest urban milieu, Lagos, Nigeria.  And, we have referenced sources that discuss issues of relevance to rural-urban interactions.  We have learned that cities, large and small towns, and villages, although distinct in terms of spatial extent, are difficult to “define”.  There is the rural-urban continuum.  We also know that cities grow partly due to rural-to-urban migration, a process which makes some rural dwellers into urban dwellers.  Moreover, city dwellers and rural dwellers interact with each other on many levels and for many reasons.  We should now be ready to write a short essay on being urban in Africa.  This assignment provides the opportunity to write and submit your essay on time.
