Transition Archive

Founded by Rajat Neogy in Uganda in 1961, Transition was Africa's preeminent venue for cultural and political debate in the 1960s, literary home to the giants of African and black American writing. Today, Transition is the premier international forum for the freshest and most compelling ideas about race and ethnicity, giving voice to a new generation of literary legends.
