The Stoop: African writers' dilemma

Aug 2, 2018

Who gets to choose which African stories get told? In this special episode from The Stoop, we meet three writers, each of them pushing against a mostly white U.S. and UK-based publishing industry in their own way. 

Guests: Siyanda Mohutsiwa, Sarah Ladipo Manyika, and Namwali Serpell
