The Nile Press is an Independent publishing company started by South Sudanese Canada author, poet and researcher when he was in Calgary, Alberta. The Press was started in 2012 to help publish Afro-centered ideas that don’t always get attention in mainstream publishing. These ideas are regarded as either insignificant, ‘uncommercializable’, or controversial. However, the value of these ideas, if written in an appreciably cordial manner, can have a changing epistemological effect on the average person whose ‘Race’ means a thing or two.
Essentially, creating a socio-intellectual space in any given society requires an established avenue in which a sense of self authentication can be notably operationalized. TNP was established to give a voice to this idea.
TNP believes in truly independent thoughts, rationality and respect for inclusion and human integrity. Fear of controversy stifles brilliance and helps in an unfortunate death of thoughts that could change the course of some things we value across racial lines. TNP will publish when it starts to accept submissions that use philosophical and Afro-centric and lens, not necessarily Afro-centric episteme, in the promotion of global social justice. So, in a year or two, TNP will start inviting submissions to be considered for publication.
