I have never seen Africa, but I will admit, when I think of Africa, even as a woman of color, a Black woman, I do not think of thriving downtown business corridors. I do not think of fashion, music, and food. I think the desert, I think the wild, yes I have been conditioned to think this way, but BECAUSE of this post, I am going to force myself to think differently about Africa, thank you.
