What Africa Means to Me
Hunter-Gault, Charlayne
Date published: 
August 2006

Hunter-Gault attempts to answer the question, 'What is Africa to Me?' as she explores the transformation of post-apartheid South Africa and the continent as a whole as it struggles towards democracy and towards a more stable position within global community. The book will emphasize Hunter-Gault's ideas about journalism, the challenges and responsibilities of reporting on Africa, the foreign media's role in representing Africa, and her reflection of what dangers her African Colleagues face in their countries to report news from their homelands.
