Yes, it’s been said before, but this is a good reminder to be mindful and analytic about the images were are proffered in the media. The last bit is particularly interesting.
“We often see these monolithic, homogenous stories about the great country of Africa. But Africa is not a country, it’s a continent. It’s 54 countries and thousands and thousands of languages So my questions is, is this imagery productive? Or is it reductive?”
