Why should you read Africa on the blog:
- You might be interested in the Africa that the popular media will not write about
- You might be a friend of Africa
- Or you might simply be curious
The big deal for us here is that we as Africans are telling our stories in our own words as well as talking about issues that affect us. Since it is unlikely that we will be invited on CNN or the BBC to tell the world about the Africa we know and love, Africa On The Blog is about us telling the world about Africa in our own words.
Sit back as we take you on a journey that transcends African culture, landscapes, ways of life, politics, food and international policy as it affects Africa as well as the occasional rant.
If you are of African heritage please consider joining us.

This blog was inspired by Ida Horner‘s desire to provide a space for Africans in the diaspora to tell their stories. Ida contacted Sarah Arrow who is successfully running BIRDS ON THE BLOG and suggested the idea of setting up Africa On the Blog alongside BIRDS ON THE BLOG. The idea evolved and we decided to open it up to all people of African heritage wherever they are in the world.
