Video: How Not to Write About Africa by Binyavanga Wainaina

Narrated by Djimon Hounsou

Through that, we became aware of another piece he'd written for Granta a number of years ago called "How (Not) to Write About Africa." Director Jesse Dylan and his company FreeForm worked with Binyavanga and the Beninois actor Djimon Hounsou to create this filmed performance of the essay. Read the entire essay here
