Africa is not…

January 25, 2013 1 comment

I have recently been exposed to a lot of people who are completely ignorant about Africa.   Let’s get this right: Africa is NOT a big land mass of people who all speak and look the same!   To a certain extent, I understand that it’s really not their fault. They didn’t learn about Africa in history in high school and all they really ever hear about ‘the dark continent’ is that there are plagues of every kind, famines of titanic proportion and wars that leave thousands limbless.   Now, these things do happen every day and they do indeed provide important context for understanding Africa. But they aren’t the be-all and end-all of our story. Far from it! Africa is a continent of layered meanings, multiple histories and equally diverse people. From the Muslim north to the predominantly French-speaking west to the multicultural east right down to the savvy south, Africa boasts over 50 countries rich with language and living.   So I am starting to take offense at people who insist on classifying the way I behave or cook or relate to things as ‘African’. What does that really mean? Can someone please define African-ness for me so that I can understand what they are talking about?!   In case you might be one of those people who thinks that Africa is a lump of land somewhere in the south of the world where everyone speaks one language and lounges about about half-naked, spear in hand, cleaning our canine teeth of our afternoon meal of raw wild meat, THINK AGAIN. Here’s a list of facts that might help you.

I can speak and read English without any problem, because I learnt it in school!

I do not speak African, I speak Shona which is my mother tongue.

I did not grow up in a tree.

Yes, we actually wear clothes and not animal skin in Africa!

We have normal houses and cities and towns in Africa.

We do not hunt anymore and there is no lion waiting outside the door.

You have to go to a game park to see wild animals!
