How (Not) To Write About Africa

While taking a creative writing class from Coursera, one of the lessons included this piece called “How Not To Write About Africa” written by Binyavanga Wainaina and performed by Djimon Hounsou.

It’s worth the few minutes of your time.

Note: On Granta.com, where the essay is published in text, it is titled “How To Write About Africa“, but I have to assume the people at (RED) felt that the satire would be lost to the masses in the video and so they added “Not” to the title.
