Now in its Fifth Edition (2016), this creative collection brings together Africa poems by South African poet and writer, Wayne Visser, including the ever popular “I Am An African”. The anthology celebrates the luminous continent and its rainbow people.There are poems inspired by countries (Botswana, Egypt, Ghana, Morocco, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia). There are tributes to the people of Africa (e.g. We Africans, First People, Little Foot, Mandela and De Klerk), its sacred places (Okavango, Sterkfontein Caves) and its natural bounty (Baobab, Canyon of Mirrors, Ode to the Elephant, Wild Africa). And there are various poems about the great continent itself (Africa Calls to Me, African Dream, God Bless Africa, I Know a Place in Africa, I Weep for Africa, Prayer for Africa, Separation). The collection is dedicated to the people of Africa, who never cease to amaze and inspire – with their colourful diversity, warm humanity, unquenchable hope, tireless resilience and indomitable spirit.

 I am an African
Not because I was born there
But because my heart beats with Africa’s
I am an African
Not because my skin is black
But because my mind is engaged by Africa
I am an African
Not because I live on its soil
But because my soul is at home in Africa
