Something I think you all should really check out is this website called Pencil Tribe. According to its about page, Pencil Tribe Magazine is “an online literary and art magazine focused on Africa-related content,” but what is that really saying?
Something that Africa is known for is its storytelling. For centuries we have told stories to each other of our past and traditions through word of mouth. We’ve made cloths and tapestries holding the tales of our history in their patterns. There are songs and dances with each note and step expressing these things. Now in our digital age, Pencil Tribe seeks to do the same. With writers, artists, and viewers from all around the world (African and non-African), this online magazine tells the stories of Africa and its people to the world.
