African Language Materials Archive (ALMA)


The African Language Materials Archive, or ALMA, is a multi-partner project focusing on the promotion and documentation of literature and literacy in the languages of Africa. It further serves to assist African language authors and publishers in publicizing and distributing their work.

The ALMA site, hosted by MATRIX, contains African language video recordings, documentary video, translation work, and bibliographies. African Immigrant Voices Project, one of several AMLA treasures available through the new website, captures the plight and the lives of African diaspora emigrés. This project features a dozen interviews in nine African languages.



Language and humanities professionals; African language authors and publishers.
