Language is power and it is a huge part of our identity , this issue is an artistic collection of personal stories, celebrating and creating dialogues on the intersectionality of identity and African languages.

This issue is a pure representation of Africans taking back the ownership of their identities and using their languages as a tool to stand tall and break barriers.
