Africa is a Country
a site of media criticism, analysis and new writing

"Media here means more than journalism ; it is also art, music, film, books, graphic design, etcetera. We don’t spend all our time criticizing though. We also celebrate and feature work that we think complicate the old, ahistoric and objectional images.

We want to introduce our readers to work by Africans and non-Africans about the continent and its diaspora that have worked against the old and tired images of Africa.

This site is not about famine, Bono, or Barack Obama."
