“Our aim is not to do away with corporations; on the contrary, these big aggregations are an inevitable development of modern industrialism, and the effort to destroy them would be futile unless accomplished in ways that would work the utmost mischief to the entire body politic. We can do nothing of good in the way of regulating and supervising these corporations until we fix clearly in our minds that we are not attacking the corporations, but endeavoring to do away with any evil in them. We are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to subserve the public good. We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth.”

This is a place for people who love Africa and a way, therefore, of sharing great African reads...
To do this, we operate the Tour d'Afrique, which takes us across Africa in alphabetical order. We visit each country for a two months stopover where we discuss a book written by an author from that country or about the country (depending on what we can find). Feel free to join in or if you want to find out more on how the tour operates, check out this thread!
In addition to the Tour, we now feature a piece of contemporary literature each month. If you are interested in new writing coming out of Africa or the Diaspora, please join us in any of the discussions in the contemporary literature folder....more
