Reading "Chimurenga" Magazine

By Sean Jacobs | Arts + Culture


Founded by Cameroonian journalist and DJ Ntone Edjabe in Cape Town in 2002, Chimurenga is a throwback to the great Pan-African literary journals of the ‘40s and ‘50s. It quickly built a reputation for standout fiction (Teju Cole, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Binyavanga Wainaina published in it early in their careers) and long-form journalism. After putting out 16 issues, reaping awards and even collaborating on a music festival, its editors are now publishing a quarterly newspaper, The Chronic. chimurenga.co.za.
