Kenyan playwright, poet, professor and activist Dr. Micere Mugo is honored as Distinguish Nyerere Lecturer at the fourth Julius Nyerere Intellectual Festival at the University of Dar es Salaam.
Mugo’s lecture (watch video) entitled, “Art, Artists, and the Flowering of Pan-Africana Liberated Zones” reflected on the role art and artist have played and must continue to play in African Liberation.
LOVE seeing female academics getting their ‘biggie ups’ (so to speak), also dynamicafrica - although not the original poster - is one of my newest tumblr favourites.
Last night, as I lay in bed extremely overtired from trying to polish the vast poo that is my new residence - and somehow replaying the Hunger Games (famine, scarcity of water, turn brother on brother) opening in my head - I thought about that ‘giant’ water source found in Africa earlier this year. In my half conscious happy, I thought how wonderful it would be if Africa became the world’s water source, and by Africa, I mean people like Dr Micere Mugo, the people whom have been forgotten/neglected in African policy making.
