“The Real Africa: Fight the Stereotype”

Lately a group of U.S.-based African students from the African Students Association of New York’s Ithaca College launched a photo social media initiative called “The Real Africa: Fight the Stereotype”. The campaign aimed to educate, dispel misconceptions about Africa and its people and to raise awareness about many stereotypes that surround Africa.

What we wanted to do was embrace the individual flags of the countries of Africa” says  “We wanted to show the beauty and the power of the flag. We also wanted to break one of the biggest misconceptions about the continent, which is that Africa is a country” said Rita Bunatal, head of PR for the organization

I really like this campaign! What do you think about it?

Lets share it! 🙂 Source here and more about IC African Students Association here.
