A few weeks ago my dad launched his Africa Focus website. I had been waiting for him to send out an announcement to his mailing list that was specifically an announcement of the website, and was going to quote it here. But he was sneaky, and just started including links to it within the text of mailing list items on other subjects. I added the site to my "Check Daily" list a couple weeks back, but for those who missed it, here it is:
This website features high-quality analysis and progressive advocacy on African issues, with particular attention to priority issues affecting the entire continent.(Quote from About AfricaFocus)
The heart of the website consists of issues of the AfricaFocus Bulletin, produced and distributed one to three times a week to over 3,200 e-mail addresses, including individuals, organizations, and listservs. Current issues are featured on the homepage; a full archive is also available on the site. Approximately 70 percent of the subscribers are in North America and approximately 13 percent each in Africa and Europe.
The site also features convenient regularly updated news feeds from the BBC's Africa service and AllAfrica.com. You can also customize part of the homepage to include the latest from AllAfrica.com on your preferred country or region. The site is fully searchable, and provides easy access to use Google to search the entire web or specific Africa-focused sites for additional information you need.
