As an advocate and a writer, I am often asked for my opinions on the ongoing Anglophone Crisis. On the eve of another October 1st, I was in conversation with CIVICUS about the state of issues in our Anglophone regions today and efforts to #EndAnglophoneCrisis. Similarly, my young brother who is born and bred American wanted to make a TikTok about things here to garner attention to #EndAnglophoneCrisis. That gave me the idea to collate and share what I call my “protest writings”. Surprisingly I found my writing voice as I wrote about the crisis, I have always written poetry, struggled with fiction and did academic writing as trained to. But writing about the Anglophone Crisis helped me discover that my niche was creative nonfiction.
With this month’s musings, I want to catalogue most of the posts I have made on the Crisis and interviews I have given.
