In deze uitdagende lezing vraagt journalist Andrew Mwenda ons om het 'Afrikaanse vraagstuk' te herzien — hij vraagt ons om verder te kijken dan de verhalen over armoede, burgeroorlog en hulpeloosheid die de media ons laten zien, en om de mogelijkheden te ontwaren voor het creëren van rijkdom en geluk over het hele continent.
