Africa in the making of Global Justice*
by the World Development Movement
"Africa is the way it is precisely because of how it has been incorporated, often forcefully, into the rhythm of the global patterns in which profit is created, into the rhythms of how inequalities are constantly reproduced."

2007 will see the commemoration of the end of the transatlantic trade in African people. To mark this anniversary, I am seeking articles by writers and artists about the relationship between African Diasporic/Black history and artistic expression by people of African heritage. Click here to read the Poem, "The Blood", which explores these themes. It takes a few moments to load.
Please submit your article for consideration for my new website. This project is funded by Arts Council England. For more details, send an e-mail to Arts@blacksuccess1.com
