How Not to Write About Africa





It’s spring break and I am so HAPPY!!! I am equally happy to discover other Africans who are stepping up and inviting people to reconsider and examine their motives for viewing Africa and Africans as always needing to be rescued. Binyavanga Wainaina is a Kenyan writer, who used satire to address this very issue. Here is a video, narrated by Djimon Hounsou, of Wainaina’s How Not To Write About Africa.
