Sokari Ekine · May, 2006

I am a Nigerian living in Spain where I have just resigned from a three year stint as an organic farmer. I started blogging 18 months ago with the idea of presenting a progressive and feminst perspective of Africa and the African Diaspora. I am interested in seeking out ways to encourage more Africans to blog and creating a community of grassroots African bloggers as a way/space for Africans to exchange ideas and strategies for effecting change in our communities, share experiences and tell our own stories in our own words. My other interests include writing poetry, literature, walking, globe trotting, anything geeky and I am fanatical about music. I blog at Black Looks.
