There are a number of myths about the African woman that need dispelling as well. Watch Eliza Anyangwe challenge some of those myths just by being her and telling her own story online, and check out Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s very important “Danger of a Single Story” TED talk that Anyangwe mentions.
“When you hear the word ‘Africa’, what comes to mind? It’s likely you think of death, destruction, disease and maybe safari. Western media has had a single story of the continent for centuries. But, argues Eliza Anyangwe, African people are slowly dispelling the myths by telling their own stories online.”
