We are all African -
We are all African. Africa is a continent where boundaries form the lines of many conflicts. When Europe arbitarily divided the African Continent into countries in the 1800’s by lines that had no meaning to those who lived there, these lines of conflict and strife, of poverty and trauma, of exploitation and despair have etched thier legacy on the Africa and her people.
And although the exhibition highlights the wars and conflicts, the poverty and disease of Africa, the core message clearly shows the depth of resilence of the African people, and their ability to survive against all odds.
The final cry of this exhibition is ‘we are all African’. Humanity, the human race, was born in the African continent. We are all African. The 1,000 words of Africa are the 1,000 words of the world.
