This map reflects a sorting of the poets published by APBF onto the United Nations list of African countries and regions. National boundaries are often shifting, and even regions can be difficult to categorize. As such, this project looks to an external and internationally recognized source. Even so, the work to keep the map updated is also ongoing. Poets are listed by the country with which they primarily identify, to the best of the researchers’ knowledge, which is most often the country of birth or parentage, even though many poets currently live, work, and/or study outside of these nations of origin.
