Do you Richard Ali?

He is a Nigerian writer and here are 3 things we think you should know about him:

  1. RA is a nomad at heart – born in Kano, raised in Jos, studied at Zaria – whose love for places other than home has taken to Morocco, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Germany, Italy and USA. Books and coffee are his two other emphasis.
  2. As an undergraduate, RA was secretary of a NANS committee on interreligious dialogue and editor of Sardauna Magazine. He runs a programme on countering extremism with literature, has worked in government. His favourite colour is green.
  3. An author with two published two books – City of Memories (novel, 2013) & The Anguish and Vigilance of Things (poetry, 2019), RA co-founded Parresia Publishers Limited and is now working to set up #TIgrayCoffee Company with a plan to make coffee a human rights issue in Nigeria..
