SUNU is an independent, multidisciplinary journal, which provides an inclusive and collective space for young leaders to publish work about Africa and the diaspora. It operates as a forum, where their voice and perspectives are becoming increasingly essential in African affairs, critical thought and aesthetics. Using scholarly, literary and artistic works, SUNU seeks to interrogate the past and the contemporary. Its aim is encouraging debates and conversations across geographies and chronologies. By engaging the various perspectives present between young Africans and people of African-descent, SUNU will contribute to the emergence of an African discourse wrestling with the social, economic, political and cultural situations, both critically and creatively.

Keeping within the multidisciplinary approach, SUNU seeks to broaden and widen the spaces for dialogue and exchange through diverse fora including panel discussions, film screenings and art exhibitions. Partnering and cultivating relationships with academic and cultural institutions will be instrumental in enforcing the mission and widening SUNU's reach.

 SUNU: Journal of African Affairs, Critical Thought + Aesthetics is claiming a space in the public sphere where ideas on Africa posited by the next generation of scholars, writers, artists and change agents are welcomed and encouraged.
