Prequel to The History Issue

To end the year, Saraba offers you a prefatory remark on our forthcoming History Issue: a short story and an essay.

Toni Kan’s short story reenacts a moment of historical turbulence; turbulent given that the strangeness of fiction cannot compensate with the stark reality of a world that banalizes our fiercest imagination.

The Art Issue

WE THINK that to deal with art we ought to present it, not talk about it. For four months we opened our window to artists producing the finest work in Nigeria, Africa and elsewhere, and the result is what you will see.

The Africa Issue

There is a statement, “Africa is a country” used to satirize “Western” preconceptions about Africa. With billions of people, thousands of ethnicities, several colonial histories and varied post-independence struggles, the continent is spoken of as a single plane that is beset by bad leadership, unending poverty, and the odd scenery.
