Call For Submission | Wakanda: Rewriting Africa

ACEworld Online Magazine is currently receiving entries from poets all across the globe. The goal of the contest is to appreciate the artistic brilliance of who can best interpret the movie, Black Panther.

It remains a notable fact that one of the problems Africans have ever had is the inability to create forward looking ideologies. We always think of the past. The crops of politicians today have no ambition to change the continent. Just their pockets and cliques.

This is why the movie has and will always be a very first and great feat at rewriting the history of Africa. Black Panther is a stern rebuke of history.
