KOLA Multicultural Literary Magazine
Publisher Black Writers Guild (Quebec)
The kola nut symbolizes spiritual bonding in West African Societies. A traveler is welcomed into the house and invited to share the kola nut and to drink palm wine. This act of sharing gives the visitor a status in the family, and with it all the rights and privileges enjoyed by the host family.
It is on this tradition the magazine was founded. Its goals are to share and to celebrate the liberation of all black folk as a significant part of our humanity. The editorial staff welcome your letters, comments, suggestions and yes, even criticisms. We look forward to your response.
