we must not look away

When you follow the headlines (and maybe the article belonging to the headline), you might read about the situation about a passengerplane shot down. About the Hamas – Israel situation. About the atrocities of IS(IS). 

And what about the daily violence in some African countries? Are we looking away? Or are we waiting for just one picture that tries to capture the mood in a forgotten corner of this continent? 

Vulture Watching Starving ChildMaaza Mengistu (Ethiopia and USA) wrote about just one picture showing the situation in Southern Sudan in the early nineties.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
