As a nod to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s danger of a single story comes a documentary series from Africa.com titled Africa Straight Up.
The website’s goals are: to change the way the world sees Africa, and to be the online platform for those changes.
Here’s how the documentary Africa Straight Up is described:
With more than a billion people spread across 54 countries, speaking more than 3,000 languages, Africa cannot – and should not – be limited to a single narrative. Africa Straight Up is an insider’s look at positive stories about Africa and its diaspora.
