About Us

“The Africanists”, since 2010, is made up of journalists, analysts and opinion-makers that have all closely been following events in Africa for decades. Their shared aim of collecting, digesting and providing quality information on this very diverse continent had led them to join forces and create this site.

We need you as a reader; we need you as a contributor. Are you a journalist, an analyst, an opinion-maker, an activist? Have you a good and sharp pen, a curious mind, and an honest approach? Contact us with your ideas, and we offer you a platform to share them.

We focus on text, audio, video and photography. If you feel comfortable producing stories through any of those means, we are keen to publish. If you have already published them elsewhere, a link under the article should state that fact.

The Africanists is open for everybody with his or her mind and heart in Africa. No abuse or discrimination of any nature, however, will be tolerated.
