A documentary series taking you on a journey across the continent through the eyes of an insider. We know what you’ve seen and heard about Africa – what they think is happening, what they think she needs, what they think she is. The four things that come to mind when people think of Africa are population, problems, poverty, and promise unfulfilled – headline media reports on the continent but that’s not the whole story.


My Africa Is: Alternative Nairobi currently airing nationwide on Afropop:The Ultimate Cultural Exchange. Learn more, watch the episode and access a new community engagement toolkit under Resources.
