seeing africa differently
A series of tweets on how to brand Africa led me to a very funny compilation of “commercials” done by a group of Brits, at a site entitled See Africa Differently. It’s a good-humored look at what some of us who do work in Africa complain about: an unfortunately consistent Western perspective about Africa as some cursed place. I mean, even Google expects people to think the worst of Africa. There’s a long and thoughtful post on Rebranding Africa that captures some of the tweets and also links to various sites, including to the film This Is My Africa.
