Hibiscus with Ginger was started by two students of Sudan and of East Africa in general. We believe that Sudan, as well as other parts of East Africa, cannot be understood solely through their wars and hardships. Discussions which settle for this reductive picture too often skew the debates about the region. Rather, the conflicts and other challenges must be viewed in concert with these nations’ diversity, rich histories and vibrant cultures. HwG, then, not only offers analysis on East African politics, focusing primarily on Sudan, but also seeks to highlight cultural and social activities as well as current artistic endeavors.
We welcome contributions on any topic related to East Africa or its diaspora. If you are interested in writing something for the blog, or simply wish to give feedback, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
