Literandra is a literary blog that aims to serve as a platform for historically marginalised and under-represented voices to speak and be heard.

At Literandra, we showcase and promote books authored by or about Africans and people of African descent. We also feature social commentaries and opinion pieces about films, events, and other forms of art and culture that celebrate the past, present, and future of the aforementioned demographic.

We encourage our audience to be critical, open minded, and willing to engage in discussions that challenge their views on society as we know it.

Together, we can use our literary and cultural experiences to advocate for a freer and fairer society – not just for some of us, but for all of us.

We hope you’ll enjoy consuming our content as much as we enjoy creating them.

Lots of Love,
