The True Size of Africa

The True Size of Africa



Do you realize the true size and incredible diversity that exists on the African continent? @Sara Jacobovici recently shared an important TEDtalk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, on the danger of a single story for a continent composed of 54 countries on a landmass so large it will boggle your mind. Which led to a comment by @CityVP Manjit about his curiosity to explore the experiences, lives, and hearts of a place very under-represented in our virtual community.

I second that openness. I look forward to getting to know so very many more of the stories being lived on the African continent as beBee grows and evolves into a truly worldwide place of interconnection.

Here are the top 12 countries as represented by population:
1. Nigeria
2. Ethiopia
3. Egypt
4. Democratic Republic of the Congo
5. South Africa
6. Tanzania
7. Kenya
8. Sudan
9. Algeria
10. Uganda
11. Morocco
12. Mozambique

If you are the musical type, this complex song by Nneka "Africans" as shared by Irene Hackett may open up your heart and mind to learning more about a place full of many millions of stories of truly interesting people

One of my favorite TV series of all time is The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency starring Jill Scott who portrays Mma Ramotswe, Botswana's first lady detective.

#3 That is a great tip! Was just about to write some more.

#2 It's because it has 113 words. So you have highlighted Producer has to have at least 200. Edit the article including words to that figure and change its appearance. Thank you @Deb Helfrich.

@Federico Álvarez San Martín - I am curious why this buzz, created in Producer comes across with a tiny photo, and without the producer tag? As this picture is the point - since it is worth many more than a thousand words.

Sorry for deleting your comment, @Tony Rossi, as the picture is the most important part!
