Ọya’s Tornado is excited to announce the release of
This probing and politically timely collection of essays, interviews, speeches, poetry, short stories, and proposals illuminates the struggles, triumphs, impediments, objectives, and diversity of the contemporary African world.
The African World in Dialogue contains five sections:
- Listen: The Ink Speaks
- Restitutions, Resolutions, Revolutions
- Africanity, Education, and Technology
- Life Lines from the Front Lines
- Gender, Power, and Infinite Promise
Each section brims with provocative and compelling insights from elder-warriors, wordsmiths, journalists, and academics, many of whom are also activists.
Contributors include Tunde Adegbola, Muhammad Ibn Bashir, Jacqueline Bediako, Charlie Braxton, Alieu Bundu, Baba A. O. Buntu, Chinweizu, Ricardo Cortez Cruz, Oyinlola Longe, Jumbe Kweku Lumumba, Morgan Miller, Asiri Odu, Chinwe Ezinna Oriji, Kevin Powell, Blair Marcus Proctor, Ishola Akindele Salami, Aseret Sin, Teresa N. Washington, and Ayoka Wiles. The book also features interviews with Hilary La Force, Mandingo, Kambale Musavili, and Prince Kuma N’dumbe.
With selections that critique and in many cases upend conventional political thought, educational norms, fantasies of social progress, and gender myths, The African World in Dialogue challenges its audience. Indeed, the book’s “Appeal to Action” is literal: Rather than offering eloquent elaborations of African world woes, The African World in Dialogue offers detailed plans and paths for emancipation and elevation.
Activists and scholars of African Studies, African American studies, Pan-Africanism, criminal justice, Black revolutionary thought and action, gender studies, sociology, and political science will find this book to be both inspirational and indispensable.
