About: Third World Press original Statement of Purpose reads: “the third world is a liberating concept for people of color, non-europeans - for Black People. That works has a ethos - a Black aesthetic if you will - and t is the intent of Third World Press to capture that ethos, that black energy. We attempt to give an initial exposure to black writers. We publish black (poetry? Historical notes, essays, short stories, and hopefully novellas) for Africans here (most referred to as ‘negroes’ and Africans abroad. And because we publish black - profit it’s not our thing/no time our thing.”
