The wordSauti - Swahili for voice - captures the spirit of the Stanford Journal of African Studies. Sauti is committed to ensuring that student voices are heard both within and without the Stanford community. Through the reproduction of research compilations and personal narratives of field experiences, we seek to highlight critical African issues, to ignite meaningful discussions and to invoke calls to action. Although Africa gains most of its global attention by virtue of its 'problems' and 'needs', the continent possesses troves of opportunity. It is our aim to present a balanced view of the continent, juxtaposing the ills that bedevil Africa with the awe-inspiring events and developments that are primed to propel the continent into an era where its troubles are but relics of history.
