Amidst the Black Lives Matter movement, the End Sars revolution and the Fix the Country demand, TSOO BOI digs deep into the legacy of protests in the history of black people, and the potency of hashtags as a protest tool in the modern and digital age. This collection of essays, short stories and poems wrestles with our present reality, fleshes out the regressive parts, and imagines a better future.
Reflecting on the past, present and future, 17 contemporary Ghanaian writers speak on topics such as respectability politics, queerphobia, the Ghanaian dream, decolonization and climate change.
TSOO BOI is a shout for action, attention and coordination.
