AFRO is a pan-african magazine that focus’s on beautiful writing poetery and imagery from across the continent. The world knows of africa’s wars famines and diseases, but what does it know what is being lost as a result? What happens in africa’s quieter moments, in it’s art, in the treasured time of it’s residents. AFRO is made by Africans living and working in Africa for Africans living and working in Africa, so we might know of each other.
