Black Boy Review


Ihe anyi na eme

Black Boy Review came in 2013 with the aim of promoting new, young, under-represented writers from the African continent. Over the years, we have been publishing reviews and conducting interviews about books, short stories, and poetry by these writers, who we think are also underpromoted in the African soil. Our goal is to feed our audience with the possibilities and imaginations that these writers produce.

We are interested in sustaining the literary community as well as serving as a resource center for documenting African literary voices. We have been featured on OKAYAFRICA and CULTURE CUSTODIAN, in  a list of book spaces putting African literature on the map.
