African Spear Magazine

In June, we started working on a new project: The African Spear Magazine. In all the excitement and turmoil that surrounded this project we did not get a chance to formally introduce it to you. So here it goes!

The African Spear is a magazine that is here to show and celebrate the presence of people of African descent in the Hong Kong. Just like a spear it is sharp and precise, and just like the spear it is wielded by strength and power. In the magazine we always take on a topic and through different contributors we paint a diverse image of this topic through articles, poems and artworks! Our past topics for this new project have been Migration and Resilience. Watch out for our next issue on Heritage coming out soon!

The magazine is available as both a hard and soft copies. The hard copies can be purchased at the Africa Center in Tsim Sha Tsui whilst the soft copies can purchased online.

As a mouthpiece for the African community in Hong Kong, the African Spear addresses topics of interest for our communities in the city, in Asia and beyond.


Currently, a topic that is lying very close to our heart is the effects of colonialism and imperialism being played out on the land and bodies of Afghanistan and Afghans. We ask people of Hong Kong to stay informed on the issue, to discuss and educate themselves of the situation.
