Social media has played a huge role in representing contemporary Africa. We at Okayafrica understand the importance of Twitter and Facebook in getting the word out about music acts and various other cultural movements in Africa and the diaspora. Other folks who are shaping the changing global perception of Africa, aka Afropolitans, include Yolanda Sangweni, Kathleen Bomani, and Chief Boima. All three are on a panel organized by Society HAE as part of Social Media Week. Join the discussion Monday Feb 13 6:30pm-9:00pm at Big Fuel in NYC. For more info go here.
