The name ‘Literandra’ comes from a conjunction of my name (Alessandra), and my greatest passion (Literature).

At Literandra, my contributors and I showcase and promote books authored by or about Africans and people of African descent. We also feature socially relevant films, events, and other forms of art and culture that celebrate the past, present, and future of women and ethnic ‘minorities’ – particularly, Africans and people of African descent.

We encourage our audience to be critical, open minded, and willing to challenge their views on race and gender as we know it.

Together, we can use our literary and cultural experiences to advocate for racial and gender equality, and upset the status quo one day at a time.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading our posts as much as we enjoy putting them up.

Lots of Love,
