Zwart. Afro-Europese Literatuur uit de Lage Landen

The anthology Zwart. Afro-Europese Literatuur uit de Lage Landen (in English: Black. Afro-European Literature from the Low Countries) was launched on 1 February in TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht, the Netherlands.

It’s a collection of stories - fiction and non-fiction (in Dutch) - by writers  with African roots from the Netherlands and Belgium. The authors’ backgrounds differ in terms of their homeland, culture, and language, but they share a hybrid identity. The book is edited by Vamba Sherif and Ebissé Rouw.
