Bakwa 10: Family Politricks

Release date: December, 2020

What does family mean? How do we relate to it? Is it defined exclusively by blood ties? How often does it fuck us up? How often does it protect us? From Bamenda to Maryland, Port Harcourt to Addis Ababa, Bakwa 10 explores the ways in which families make and unmake us. Contributors include: Pwaangulongii Dauod, Sada Malumfashi, Bertille Mbarga, Lebohang Mojapelo, Géraldin Mpesse, Eleanor TK, Nelson Kamkuimo, Mignotte Mekuria, Kanyinsola Olorunnisola, and JK Anowe.
