Some of My Favourite TEDTalks Given By Africans

Ory Okolloh, smart and full of wit but great points, we all need to take onboard…

Eleni Gabre-Madhin, now for all those who think of Ethiopia and remember the images of famine and starvation, well, here is one smart Ethiopian lady who tells us there is more to the nation that famine, believe it or not. Exceptionally smart and eloquent, Eleni Gabre-Madhin does not mess about…instead of running away, she went back to help rebuild…food for thought big time…

Chris Abani, full of humour and deep compassion. I love the line, “Anything a man can do, I can fix.” This talk  by Abani, really makes you think about the role of women in society through the years but the story of his cellmate hurts. We human beings are our own worst enemies sometimes…

William Kamkwamba, inspirational! Just sheer inspiration!!!

Chris Abani again, still full of humour as he talks about Africa.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the single story which keeps a continent bound but if you take nothing way, make a vow to tell your story, your way, no compromise!

Enjoy, I certainly did and learnt a lot.

    Thanks for this post, I found Dr. Eleni Gabre-Madhin’s speech highly inspiring to the mode and direction to which Africa is moving. Will listen to the rest as I go on.
