VOA Our Voices 241: Problematic Portrayals of Africa
This week, on Our Voices, we look at the problematic portrayals of Africa. We examine the difference between the way much of the world sees the continent and the way Africans see it. Africa is one of the most multinational, multilingual, and multicultural parts of the world. So, why the disconnect? In this episode, we go to South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, and France, to meet those who are challenging the idea of “Africa’s single narrative”.
Welcome to “Our Voices”. This is where African women bring the continent’s most pressing issues to the table. Hosted by Hayde Adams FitzPatrick, Ayen Bior and Auriane Itangishaka, we'll ask questions, share ideas, discuss solutions, and most importantly, bring voices - Our Voices - to the conversation.
We’re bringing women’s voices to the conversation and, more than that, we’re building a community of inclusion and empowerment. We know you want to talk about the important issues of our time. And this is the place to do it. Your voice matters – every voice matters so join us in this conversation. Together, we can start transformational conversations online, in our living rooms, our communities, in our lives.
