In honor the poets, artists and cultural leaders we lost last year, African Voices is planning a special ancestors issue for Spring 2014. We will pay tribute to Jitu K. Weusi, Amiri Baraka, John Watsui Branch and Sister Fabyiene Miranda. The powerful souls who made transition within the past year is mind blowing — our whole universe has shifted axis.
Please contribute to our tribute list. If you have a loved one who has made an impact on your life and others as a mentor or creative inspiration, we are inviting you to send poems, a short dedication on your loved one’s life and community contributions with a photo if you have one.
We will select as many as we can for African Voices’ print and online editions. Submissions deadline: Feb. 12, 2014. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
