CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
South Africa/South U.S.A.: An Anthology of Poetry, Prose, Essays, and Images
South Africa/South USA -- This anthology will be a compilation of contemporary writing reporting the struggles, victories and dual past and destiny of blacks in South Africa and blacks in the South USA. We will look at the correlation between the contemporary lives of black South African post apartheid and blacks living in the American South post Jim Crow.
Through their work, writers from South Africa and southern USA will engage in a discussion about the Historical and contemporary lives of people whose struggles have defeated Jim Crow and apartheid (SA + USA). The work will include reflection on the interior life of those peoples during the past struggles; the current conditions post apartheid and their aspirations for a new future. Theses works will include poetry, essays and short fiction. We are looking for a broad range of writing and views.
We are interested in a contemporary look at the similarities in the lives of South Africa - post-apartheid and South USA - post slavery—health, education, education, arts, politics, leadership, AIDS, etc.
