A group of students have launched a campaign to break down stereotypes about Africa.


Here is a report I saw on CNN’s Website. As an African I believe this is a great initiative by the students because a lot of people say silly things about Africa and they just need to stop being Ignorant.

Check here –

They say there are no stupid questions — or are there?

How about, “Do you speak African?” Or, “What is Africa’s flag?”

Yes, these are quite ludicrous. Tired of regularly having to answer questions like these, a group of U.S.-based African students has launched a photo campaign in a bid to dispel misconceptions about their continent.

Called “The Real Africa: Fight the Stereotype,” the social media initiative aims to educate and raise awareness about the common stereotypes surrounding Africa and its people —
misunderstandings like Africa being a
homogenous entity rather than a diverse
continent of more than 50 countries.

The campaign features striking images of the members of the African Students
Association of New York’s Ithaca College
wrapped in different African flags or
holding them proudly.

“What we wanted to do was embrace the individual flags of the countries of Africa,”says Rita Bunatal, head of PR for the organization. “We wanted to show the beauty and the power of the flag. We also wanted to break one of the biggest misconceptions about the continent, which is that Africa is a country,” she adds.

For each photograph, the posing students, aged 18 to 21, were also asked to come up with simple but powerful quotes that would disprove the ignorant and offensive remarks they would often hear.
As a result, the images boast statements like
“Africans do not all look alike,” “Africans don’t need to be saved,” “Africa is not a country” and Africa is not a land filled with diseases.” In addition, the campaign is saturated with educational facts that are designed to strengthen the students’ quotes —

“I don’t speak ‘African’ because ‘African’ is not a language” says one student, his declaration accompanied by the fact that “there are an estimated 2,000 languages spoken in Africa.”

“We wanted to give facts, to correct, to
give knowledge,” says Bunatal, “trying to educate and stop people from saying
these other things.”

The African Students Association of
Ithaca College first posted their photo
campaign on CNN’s iReport platform on
January 20. Since then, some 5,000
people have viewed the photos and more
than 2,000 have shared them on Facebook.
“The simplest actions can create awareness and we are hoping to do this not only campus-wide,but also world-wide,” says Bunatal.

This Actor Deserves the Oscar! (March 2, 2014)


witlessdatingafterfifty

With a few days off from the library, weather conditions

and changes in the month, I feel like I am ‘behind’ on my

posts! I was excited, while anticipating the month leading

to the Oscars, about the Turner Classic Movies’ “kick off”

show called, “And the Oscar Goes To…”

Turner Classics held it at 8 p.m. on Saturday, February 1st.

The messy day had been icy and snowy. Brr! Just the right

show to cap off an evening!

The featured 10 Best Picture nominees from 1939 were aired

throughout that day. They also aired a new documentary film

about 85 years of Academy Awards. The film included famous

actors, actresses and filmmakers who were interviewed for

this auspicious occasion.

Since the rest of the month will feature past movie winners

it will be an excellent time to check out your television

guide for which channel TCM is located on! Also…

Fragments Of A Single Whole


Boomie Bol

Our lives are very intersected
Underneath the diverse layers we embody
So sometimes we collide
On other occasions we crash
BANG!!!
To a thousand little pieces we succumb
Broken into fragments of a single whole
