As Africa changes—and the world’s perception of it changes— the images of Africa and its people need to change too. Afripedia is a collaborative, multi-part project profiling a new generation of artists from Africa and the Diaspora through film, digital media, online platforms, and more. Join us on Tuesday, July 19 for a free, not-to-be-missed screening of Afripedia's Senegal, Ghana, and New York film series. The screening will be followed by a special discussion with Afripedia co-directors, Teddy Goitom and Senay Berhe.
