Abdulrazak Gurnah left Africa as a refugee in the 1960s amid the persecution of citizens of Arab origin under President Abeid Karume’s regime in Zanzibar where he grew up, when the peaceful liberation from British colonial rule led to a revolution. He was only able to return to Zanzibar in 1984, allowing him to see his father shortly before his death. Bravo to Abdulrazak Gurnah for his bravery and for the merit of his incredible novels!
As many of you know in January of 2020 we moved our offices. Due to the pandemic, we all experienced far less in-person interactions. It was so nice of CCX Media to ask us if they could come to the office to learn more about what we do. They made us feel truly welcome in our new location!
None of this would be possible without the incredible support you all have shown us for over fifty years. Thank you for helping us share the needs of our African brothers and sisters with our community!
