    The literary scene in Kenya is growing and at a relatively fast rate, gone are the days when Ngugi wa Thiongo was the only benchmark for young writers. Young Kenyans are writing, and they have a lot to say. As Kenyans put pen to paper or fill their various electronic devices with notes of expression, one thing stands out, with a population of 40 million, and a high literacy rate, Kenya still lags behind the big wigs like Nigeria and South Africa. So, what is Kenya doing to narrow this gap? David Mailu a renowned Kenya writer and Ng`ang`a Mbugwa the Ngugi wa Thiong`o literary winner, 2012, talks to us about writing for the African audience and drives us through the different generation of writers that the world have come to know and love.

    I compiled a list of 2o+ African American literature novels for newbies to the genre or avid bookworms like me. When I first started my journey, I really didn't know what books to start with or any authors for that matter. This is not a complete list but a starting point from which to expand your own horizons. I didn't see many if any youtube videos for guidance in this area so why not make one? With so many black sisters/brothers not knowing where they come from, these books are a good way to dive into the history and knowledge of "us" in a contemporary way.

    February 18, 2010. Associate professor of English at Virginia Commonwealth University and ordained minister Dr. Katherine Clay Bassard discussed her book Transforming Scriptures, which examines the work of African American women writers to explore their profound intellectual, even theological engagements with the Bible—the book that has been referred to as the great code of Western civilization. As the title indicates, these encounters with the Bible were, indeed, transformational, as black women writers both reshaped and were shaped by the scriptures they appropriated for their own self-representation.
