"Designed in collaboration with Studio Safar in Beirut, and published in its entirety in Arabic as Muzmin, this special edition of the Chronic argues that the Sahara has never been a boundary, real or imagined. Trade caravans, intellectuals, literatures, human resources and political ideas have long circulated from Timbuktu to Marrakesh, from Khartoum to Tunis and Cairo and beyond." from Chimurenga website

Contributions include Saarah Jappie on the Arabic roots of Afrikaans in Cape Town and Achmad Cassiem on the role Robert Sobukwe, founder of the Pan Africanist Congress, played in triggering Muslim political radicalism during the struggle against apartheid.
