About us

African Perspectives Publishing

African Perspectives Publishing is a premier black-owned South African publishing and distribution company, based in Johannesburg. Embodying a legacy of resilience, innovation, and cultural stewardship, the company has for nearly two decades been instrumental in shaping the discourse surrounding Pan-Africanism, Revolutionary Theory, and Identity with its diverse offering of published works.
Standing as a pioneering force in literature, African Perspectives Publishing is propelled by its vision of amplifying diverse narratives from across and beyond the continent.
Its commitment to amplifying voices that challenge and inspire is intensified by the acquisition of publishing rights to works by Ernesto Che Guevara, the biography of the legendary Afro-beat originator; Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and the memoir narrating the extraordinary circumstances under which a young military officer, Flight Lieutenant John Jerry Rawlings became the longest serving Head of State of Ghana, and changed the course of his countries history and political development.
Its curated collection of tributes to Dr Ali Mazrui solidifies the publisher’s dedication to preserving and promoting African intellectual heritage. Enriching minds, fostering dialogue in pursuit of a more inclusive, and enlightened society, the company continues to be a beacon of literary excellence.
