Globe Chat: Technology in Africa

Have you heard of Silicon Savannah? Do you know how cell phones have transformed banking and healthcare throughout the African continent?  Have you heard of the streaming platform IrokoTV or the video game studio Kiro'o Games?

If your answer is no to any or all of these, then this is a chance for you to see how #BlackExcellence works from the motherland! Come eat, chat, and deconstruct racist perceptions of Africa.
