There are many stereotypes about Africa--that it’s a place of conflict, of disease, war, and famine. Or that it’s a single place at all, rather than a continent of 54 distinct countries. We'll engage with thinkers and do-ers who are constructing new realities for their respective countries, and for the African continent a whole. We’ll hear from TED team member Emeka Okafor, who guides us through some evolving views (and misconceptions) of the African continent; Patrick Awuah, who left a career at Microsoft to found a liberal arts college in his native Ghana; and journalist Andrew Mwenda, who says that industry, not aid, is what’s driving Africa’s growing economies.
