As you may already know, the United Nations has proclaimed 2011 the International Year for People of African Descent (see ory.aspNewsID=37018 ). One of the aims is to "promote a greater knowledge of and respect for their diverse heritage and culture". Urban Africa Movement suggests that promoting knowledge about the modern, urban, enterprising realities in Africa is vital to enhance understanding about that Africa is and always has been so much more than the various forms of misery that the media feeds us with.

Urban Africa Movement works to promote a media image of Africa that is characterized by balance in the portrayal of urban and rural landscapes, as well as between modern and traditional - both in the contemporary context, as well as in historical articles, programs and education. Among other things, we have a training tool for this in the form of a free PowerPoint slide-show called "Odd One Out" on our site, where you are to guess which images are not of African cities. The slideshow is pedagogically appropriate for all ages from 6 years upwards.
