A Diaspora of Hope

  • Aired: 07/08/2011
  • 02:45
  • Rating: NR
The news we get out of Africa is almost always bad. From drought in Ethiopia to mass rapes in Congo to corruption in South Africa, this never-ending litany of problems makes many Americans think Africa is only a continent in trouble. While those problems are worth reporting, it's important to remember that they don't give us the whole picture of life in the over fifty different African nations.
