I’ve joined this challenge with a commitment of reading 12 books by African writers throughout the Diaspora. I read about it at Deborah’s blog, as she is joining and listed her books already. She directed me to the sponsoring site and post, BrownGirl Speak. I’m not sure what my 12 will be just yet…but I’m going to start with Cion by Zakes Mda since I’ve started it already. Mda is from South Africa and is teaching at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
