All too often, the stories we hear about the Africa continent are not told by Africans, leading to misconceptions and negative stereotypes. How can Africa take control of its own narrative? In the words of Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “Stories have been used to dispossess and malign. But stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people. But stories can also repair that broken dignity.” Join this session to discover new narratives around the peoples, cultures, and landscapes of the African continent, as told by young storytellers from across the continent.
