Aspects of African Canadian Literature
Literature | History | Writers | Children's Literature | Press | Publications | Anthologies

African Canadian literature is a wonderful mixture of the words of those born here, and those who have come. Often it is about change, and acts as a bridge between "here" (Canada) and "there" (where one comes from). It is this marriage of diversities that gives the literature of African Canadians its energy.
