This is My Africa
What do Chiwetel Ejiofor, Colin Firth (he lived in Nigeria as a little boy), Yinka Shonibare, and Paul Boateng, have in common? They are all part of a movie that focuses on African culture and what it means to them. Zina Saro-Wiwa (daughter of Ken Saro-Wiwa), a presenter for BBC and Radio 4 also serves as adviser to both British Council’s Music Unit, and The Africa Center in London, explores the perceptions of 20 people, black and white, the African continent (interestingly, she also performs under the pseudonym, Copperqueen).
This is My Africa takes you on a journey through the Africa that is in the hearts of people, and offers you an opportunity to see the side of Africa that is too often ignored. View the movie and learn about the things that make Africa what it is to so many.
