Editorial Focus

Kweli celebrates cultural kinships and the role of the literary imagination. In our shared space, you will come to know the lived experience of people of color. Our memories are wrapped inside the music of the Muscogee, the blues songs of the South, the clipped patois of the Caribbean. In English and Spanish, Zulu and Tagalog, a useful past is lying down next to an ailing present. Listen. Grow. Lift.

Kweli Journal is a quarterly literary publication.  We seek high quality literary work that is beautiful, sustaining, and profound.
