Pan-Africanism is an enduring hope and appreciation for the continent, the people of it and what it can offer. With 54 countries, Africa is a vast land mass — 11.7 million square miles — that can contain the United States, China, India and the whole of Eastern Europe. Pan-Africanism is not glorifying blackness as a divine or magical race. It is not black supremacy.
Hi friends. It’s been quite a while since I lasted posted here. But not to worry, I’m back! Once a week, I’ll share something that you: a work of art, an article I read, a story I wrote, a piece of fashion, music, whatever. So, here it goes. The hiatus is over. Thank you for visiting.
Storyteller. At its basic level, the word conveys the role of someone who preserves the memories, beliefs, aspirations, experiences of a people, a society, a civilization. Storytelling is the convergence of many disciplines, as many disciplines involve storytelling such as history, sociology, anthropology, photography and of course, literature.
I appreciate the storytelling that is done on a micro-level that requires one-one-one interaction with people on-the-ground.
Researchers say that it’s the ability of humans to tell stories that has greatly contributed to our survival as a dominant species.
