The Journal of Pan African Studies
works to become a beacon of light in the sphere of African world community studies and research, grounded in a trans-disciplinary open access scholarly peer-reviewed construct, simultaneously cognizant of the multilingualism of our audience, and the importance of universal access in cyberspace; regardless of geography, economic, social or cultural diversity.

On the cover: ‘Jikala’ (1994), a silkscreen (29x40 cm, photo by S. Williams) by artist Lionel Davis who was born in District Six, Cape Town, South Africa in 1936, and now lives in Muizenberg, Cape Town. Davis was a former political prisoner (he was incarcerated for seven years on Robben Island, whereupon he met Nelson Mandela) and long-time cultural activist. Davis works in visual modes that range from the realist to the abstract. His themes include everyday scenes as well as reflections on African identity. He earned a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Cape Town (South Africa) in 1994.
