it'd be great to see people other than celebrities. many non-famous africans are doing amazing things. it'd be great if MIMI recognised these heroes.

These are all fantastic suggestions! We'll work on making them happen for the September 2009 issue. Please let us know who else you would like to see; we could end up with a special list that is selected entirely by readers.

Hello mimi!
A Kenyan friend of mine in the US introduced me to Mimi in 2007 and I have followed ever since! You guys do a great job, and I know it can't always be easy but it is much appreciated!

I am a UK media student writing a paper on the market for African women's lifestyle magazines in the diaspora. The paper is basicaly looking at if a market exists and what makes the African woman different from say other black women i.e is there really a need for African women's magazines in the diaspora, why not stick to Essence, Ebony or Pride.

I was hoping to email someone some questions. I can't wait to hear from you!
