“Of Africa” is an online magazine where female voices and visuals are weaved together to explore and acknowledge the histories, politics, cultures and experiences of people of African descent both in Africa and in the African diaspora.

We are comprised of an all female 'Of Africa' team founded by Julia Chanda Zvobgo from Zimbabwe and co-led by Naliaka Odera from Kenya, living around the world. The team includes: the Editor in Chief, Managing Editor, four Editors, a Social Media Manager and a Financial Manager. Contributors include: writers, photographers, illustrators and graphic designers. We create spaces for women OF AFRICA to drive the conversation because it is their voices that are so frequently and sometimes fervently muted. We take back the pen, ensure that women are the storytellers and await eagerly for whatever stories they choose to tell. 

We aim to create opportunities and shine light on areas where women lead, allow for more nuanced conversations about Africa and the African diaspora in western media, uniting people of African descent while recognizing diversity and consistently disseminating the question of what it means to be ‘Of Africa’.

It is therefore of the highest priority for us that we pay creatives what they are worth, and we cannot do that without your help. We will ensure that patrons feel included in the creation and maintaining of the magazine and in supporting this initiative financially, you are ensuring that complex and nuanced conversations ‘Of Africa’ can continue and grow.
