Through a collage of poems, essays, fiction, conversations, and visual art, Imagine Africa: Volume Three brings together some of the most essential writers, artists, and thinkers of contemporary Africa. Including powerful photographs in color by Zanele Muholi, stills from the films of Jean-Pierre Bekolo, and works of fiction and poetry from nine languages, Imagine Africa: Volume Three offers a glimpse into a kaleidoscopic and vibrant continent. The series is published by Island Position, the literary imprint of the Pirogue Collective - the cultural expression of Senegal's Goree Institute, which aims to celebrate the diverse voices and imaginations of the continent of Africa and its diaspora. The collective encourages vital dialogue between writers and visual artists from across Africa with those from other parts of the world. Spanning across numerous languages, traditions, and media, Imagine Africa: Volume Three brings together some of the most essential voices and visions of Africa today.
