Searching for Wakanda

For a version of the African story that’s more than

Sentimental

More captivating than a wildlife documentary

Unfettered by directionless politics

Bridling with economic energy

Where the “average African” is prosperous

Where education is not for show but for use

And where the ambitions of our best and brightest

Extend beyond personal lifestyle goals.

The people of this land aren’t waiting to saved

Or needing instructions on how to be civilised.

They stand in the strength of their own legs.

Comfortable in their own skin.

Where is Wakanda?

Tell me if you know
