  • Enlightening!

    “Celebrity colonization of Africa”… your phrase is perfect. I never put it in that context before.

    And slide 9 was also informative. This was the first time I’ve seen African celebrities using their stardom in an effort to stand up for Africa. In the States we often are taught how “we” can help Africa and never/ seldom taught about African’s helping Africa.

    Thank you for this perspective. Good job!
