Read Africa

Read Africa is a program co-sponsored by Africa Access and the Center for African Studies at Howard University. Read Africa promotes accurate, balanced books that have been vetted by African Studies scholars. Our titles help expand American perspectives on Africa by promoting books that are country specific, avoid stereotypical portrayals and generic images of Africa, and highlight African agency and solutions.
