"CRYING FOR FREEDOM: An African Across Europe to America "is about Oheneba whose desire to escape his rough and surly native land plays a dominant role in his journey to Europe. Oheneba discovers Europe is not the land of milk and honey he had dreamt. He turns to religion for a meaning in life but discovers that to live so that there is no longer any "sense" in living now becomes the sense of life . Oheneba marries Monica, a Caucasian, despite all the glaring red flags of incompatibility and her neuro-psychic problems. Oheneba realizes he is going for a crazy ride on a tigress. He contemplates ducking out but breaking away from Monica through a divorce is like a butterfly breaking out of a cocoon. Oheneba contemplates taking his own life or murdering Monica. Despite humiliating experiences at the hands of white people, Oheneba confesses that perhaps his life objectifies the truth that white America, for all its evil deeds, is innocent and maybe paradoxically holy. However, Oheneba decides to accept himself first as a black man because he comes to believe that if he tries to be what he is not, there is always someone out there who is ready, willing, and able to punch him back to his proper place as a black man.
