"The graphic novel ‘ANLU’: a militant artistic project on the participation of Cameroonian women in the war of independence"

Carine Bahanag


In 2030, Anlu, a young Afropean girl who faces harassment at school, goes, accompanied by her best friend, to visit the Museum of Black Feminism and other movements for African and Afro-descendant women. While browsing the Museum’s collections, Anlu comes across an exhibition focused on the political activism of rural Cameroonian women and their participation in the independence struggles. By learning about this little-known part of feminist history, she also discovered the origin and meaning of her own first name: Anlu, a term defining a kind of political mobilization specific to women in the North-West region of Cameroon. She then notices that she is linked to the long and diverse history of the black feminist struggle.
