Chris Abani, Nigerian writer and poet, gives one of the most moving talks that happened at TED Global. He discusses the differences between African narrative and news on Africa – an important distinction.
A couple good quotes:
If you want to know about Africa, read our literature. And not just Things Fall Apart, because that would be like saying I’ve read, Gone With the Wind, and so I know everything about America.
Language complicates things.
