Such poetry were written by non-Africans and Africans who wrote from either a pro-colonialist or an anti-colonialist mindset. It has been said that most poetry from Africa is political in nature. There is a reason for that. Our problems emanate from politics and socio-economic mismanagement. In Whispers in the Whirlwind, young African poets ventilate about the struggles that they, and their people, face each day, due to socio-economic and political stagnancy. This anthologys sole motive is to put on the record what is happening and what must be done. The poets, who hail from several parts of Africa, speak to their leaders and their people about things lost, things forgotten and things that need to be salvaged. Whispers in the Whirlwind is a must-read for anyone who desires to see a better Africa, in spite of the many realities that act like hurdles in her path to progress.
