Where Africa and Technology Collide!

“If news is anything to go by, the US is right there with Zimbabwe”

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.
