ZAM connects the work of investigative journalists, thinkers, creatives, and other change makers in Africa and in the black diaspora with people of different backgrounds worldwide. ZAM presents stories emanating from African (investigative) journalism, art, photography, opinion and social justice activism: stories that are, like their creators, often blocked by massive obstacles due to fundamental global inequality. ZAM creates a free space where exchange, meeting and solidarity take shape in line with its mission: to help create a world beyond them and us.
