Sokari Ekine


I am a social justice activist, blogger and researcher working on Africa and African Disapora issues relating to LGBTI, Gender, and Digital / Info Activism. I have been blogging for over 5 years and was one of the pioneers of Africans blogging on Africa. I am interested in the use of Web 2.0 and mobile phone technology for activism in the global south. I have just edited a book "SMS Uprising: Mobile phone activism in Africa" which is being published by Pambazuka Press.

Other interests are poetry which breaks language, Afrobeat and stretching cords of music, experimental sound and film.
