Call to Africans
The non-profit association SDRCA (Society for the Promotion of African Cultural Realities) is an initiative to knowledge of Africa and Africans.
The SDRCA (2006) has two independent cultural magazines:
“The voice of Africa” (La veu d’Àfrica) came out in 2004, but BDxÀ was later.
The spirit of the two magazines is complementary. “The voice of Africa” is expressed in Spanish and Catalan. The BDxÀ want to have a more international support with contributions in English, French, Italian or Portuguese (colonial languages at the time).
The SDRCA appeals to the Africans and supporters to contribute both as LvdA or BDxÀ.
