Get the Whole African Story
Designed as the critical engagement website by its parent organization, Africa Agenda, Africa News Matters aims to publish the whole African story, not just a part, or some parts of it. Our goal is to counter the pervasive misinformation and stereotyping of the African continent by publishing the truth about today’s African continent. Africa News Matters does not shield the truth about the continent of 1.3 billion people. The African continent constitutes some of the world’s most resilient and robust economies, democratic governments, and educational systems. Yet a segment of the African population remains impoverished, faces constant warfare among some countries and neighbors, and there is corruption among government officials in certain places. Who gets to tell the African story fairly and sincerely without prejudice?
Acknowledging that there are two sides to the issue, the responsibility now is how to adequately inform our communities and the world about the continent, and its challenges, while also correcting the misinformation and disinformation — the lies, stereotypes, and blackmail in the media.
