Welcome to “The Africanists”

“The Africanists” seeks to create a flow of interesting, challenging, titilating, and inspiring information on Africa. We hope to cause our audience to grasp, laugh, wander and wonder; to get angry, to get involved, to discuss and to engage. Lots of rubbish gets written about Africa. Tunnel vision by many limits the ways we are given to actually see the “new” in the news, or the consistency in the “incidents”.

We actively invite you to write, to post, to comment, to send in photos – from every corner of the continent, on every conceivable topic. From art shamefully depicting a president, to oil and cattle, to new super highways and decades’ old potholes. What are your insights, your opinions?
