Africaniwa: And Then I Was – June 25th

Posted on Updated on

From ancient times, the African society has celebrated the transitions of life from birth to death with rites of passage, marking the stages of life to provide a clear definition of society’s expectations of the individual as well as giving them a sense of identity and belonging.

However, for a very few of our tribesmen and women, their narrative was going to be; YOU ARE BORN, YOU HIDE AND THEN YOU DISAPPEAR . The many myths surrounding persons with ALBINISM across the continent.

Indeed, our stories are best told by us but sometimes, to tell our whole story, we have to reconcile with a painful past, embrace the present and look forward to a boundless future.

Join us for another lived experience storytelling powered by photos as we commemorate WORLD ALBINISM AWARENESS DAY in a photo exhibition dubbed …… AND THEN I WAS. Changing and owning the narrative of persons with albinism. Please purchase a ticket for free and join us for a shared experience. This is Africaniwa– my lens, our story.
