Online lecture: Telling the African Story by Komla Dumor

Learn outside (the box of) the lecture room…

I had a 9am lecture this morning with the late great Kola Dumor as I sat behind my computer and came across his TEDxEuston talk Telling the African Story: Komla Dumor at TEDxEuston on YouTube.

And it just happens I will be going to Ghana for the Easter break so I couldn’t have seen this at a better time.

How to cover Africa in 2012 and beyond:

1. There must be a balance or please don’t patronize me.
2. When in doubt ask an AFRICAN expert – speaking the native tongue doesn’t make you an expert
3. Hire the best talent to tell your story
The biggest single audience for the BBC is Africa

“Until the lion knows how to write, every story will glorify the hunter…” Proverb

Here’s a blog post on this talk: Inspire Me by Inspire Afrika Magazine

RIP Komla Dumor… Never forgotten x
