[Journals] Chicken Bones: A Journal

ChickenBones: A Journal ( is becoming more and more an African Diaspora medium--an international journal. We have lots of African writers, but not as many writers as we'd like from the Caribbean and Latin America . The language and the tech barrier might be the problem. Most of these are black writers; but we are still getting submission from white, yellow, and brown writers as well. And we are getting submissions from many beginning writers. What we discover is that writers of the Global South are experiencing the same hell as we in the urban streets of the USA--primarily the lack of competent leadership.

From Kenya , there is Maurine Otor: Poems of Love and Pain

Her poems are honest and delightful.

From Hungary , there is Hakeem Babalola: Remembering Fela Anikulapo-Kuti An essay on the very political now deceased artist/musician Fela

From South Africa, there is Mfanelo Skwatsha: South African Oppression and Poverty

An article on the lack of decolinization of South Africa uder the ANC From Lagos, Alinnnor Arinze: Chinese Invasion of Nigeria

A personal response to globalism as it manifest itself in Lagos.

From the USA, David Morse: With the Lost Boys in Southern Sudan

A personal report from South Sudan on "resource wars"

From New Orleans, Mona Lisa Saloy: Trouble in Paradise

A personal report on the government laxity in rebuilding New Orleans

From Sudan, Abdelbagi Jibril: South Africa and Darfur -- Fact Sheet

A report on Arab racism in The Sudan

From Zimbabwe via New York: President Robert G. Mugabe's UN Speech

I am moved by this impassioned history of Zimbabwe decolonization struggle

From somewhere in Michigan, Bev Genai: The Painting: "My Friend Yictove”

This sister artist was inpsired by brother's words on the phone. What love!

From The Village of Jerusalem, Rudolph Lewis: Race Struggle is Class Struggle

I review Lloyd McCarthy's In-Dependence from Bondage. A
wonderful book!

So we have Politics, Art, Music--hands reaching across waters and hills.

ChickenBones mas much more than listed here--just go to the opening page Support ChickenBones. There's nothing like it. -- Rudy
