Explore Africa expressing!



Point your cursor at Gambia, West Africa, surrounded by Senegal near Guinea-Bissau, and listen to writer Seedy Bojang sharing meanings of words in Wolof in a chat with Maktaba. Afrikan languages are the crucible of what is often expressed in French and English and other colonial languages in Afrikan writing. Colonial languages  also speak African cultures and are influenced by our languages. Maktabaa is a space where languages are not barriers. We want to see more writing in Afrikan languages...Khwe, Acholi, Arabic, Lingala, Kiswahili, Shona, Zulu....Maktabaa is freedom of expression in action. See list of languages spoken. Hear some of them. Meet writers! Express it here!
