On 18th February 2016 I had the pleasure of delivering a Tedx talk entitled “Writing ourselves into history”. My talk was centred around the importance of remembering our various histories as black Africans. I am always amazed at how little I knew about my own history by the time I had started university, and how that limited my understanding of my past, present and how I envisioned my future. Remembering our histories is a political act. It is an act that fights against the violence of erasure and silencing Africans face in mainstream media constantly.
I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
