Details about the latest issue of Arise were unveiled Friday, and as usual, its got some top-notch talent from the diaspora and beyond. Arlenis Sosa, Jill Scott, Tinie Tempah, Spoek Mathambo and more are featured.

Editor-in-chief Helen Jennings says:

In Culture, Botswana’s heavy metal cowboys flip the bird, Booker Prize winning author Ben Okri meditates on his vision for the future of Africa; artist and curator Temitayo Ogunbiyi explores Nigeria’s contemporary art scene and we pick the best of Africa’s luxury eco beach resorts. We also introduce a new regular feature, The Big Question, which asks a selection of experts and pundits their opinions on pressing issues. Our first one is: should non-Africans be allowed to adopt African children? ARISE editor-at-large Sarah Bentley felt one answer, from writer and performer Lemn Sissay MBE was so enthralling, that we’re running it here in full.

Issue 13 drops August 2.
