Africa is a Country


Africa is a Country was founded by Sean Jacobs in 2009, growing out of the blog Leo Africanus (2007-2009). It started as an outlet to challenge the received wisdom about Africa from a left perspective, informed by his experiences of resistance movements to Apartheid.

Since then it has grown in size to include a larger geographic scope and, crucially, launched the careers of a number of young African and diaspora writers, scholars and artists to a point where as the South African newspaper Mail & Guardian concluded: “Try as you might, it is hard not to turn an online corner in Africa without bumping into Africa is a Country.”

Today, with a team of editors, and over 500 contributors, it features online commentary, original writing, media criticism, videos, audio, and photography, becoming one of the leading intellectual voices in the African online media sphere.

We are also on TwitterFacebookInstagram and Mixcloud.
