Meanwhile, On The TumblR: Rosebell Kagumire Adds Her Voice To The #StopKony Debate

“How you tell the story of Ugandans is much more important,” says journalist Rosebell Kagumire. “If you’re showing me as voiceless, as hopeless, you have no space telling my story, you shouldn’t be telling my story.”

The image and words shown at left are part of a video by Kagumire, which you can  get to by visiting Andrea’s post here. And, as ever, thanks to everybody who’s been following our Tumblr page for more quick hits during the week.

    I agree. I just watched the video. I couldn’t have said it any better than Kagumire. I especially like how she mentioned how the “white/westerner saving poor, hopeless Africans” narrative  has been going on for centuries.

    I just started following her Twitter a few days ago, she’s got a lot of wonderful things to say about the Kony campaign.

    I saw this yesterday and I was really happy about her adding her voice to the mix.
