Ralph Leonard
writer; student; contributor, Areo

Ralph Leonard is a British-Nigerian writer who was born in Eastbourne, Southern England, in 1996. He is a contributor to Areo magazine and has done previous work for NOTA Network. He writes on issues to do with politics, religion, culture, human rights and international affairs. As an ardent secularist and leftist, Ralph is critical of certain failings of many sections of the existing Left, submitting to conservative thinking such as it’s embrace of isolationism against international solidarity and identity politics against universalism. At its root this critique is a demand to uphold the legacy of the Enlightenment in terms of universal values and the project for the emancipation of humanity.
