In this talk, Minna Salami shares images of women from around the world, highlighting how out of touch the stereotypes are from reality. She tells powerful stories of her diverse grandmothers whose lives have shaped hers and of how images of African women in the West do not represent the experiences of her own friends and family. And how, very simply, African women like the same things as women everywhere. Minna Salami writes, speaks and advocates on a broad range of Africa, Diaspora and feminist issues. She writes the award-winning African feminist blog, MsAfropolitan, and is a member of the Duke University’s Global Educator Network as well as the Guardian’s (UK) Africa Network.

Bebey attended a college in Douala, where he studied mathematics, before going to study broadcasting at the University of Paris. Moving to the United States, he continued to study broadcasting at New York University. In 1957, Bebey moved to Ghana at the invitation of Kwame Nkrumah, and took a job as a broadcaster. 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗿 In the early 1960s, Bebey moved to France and started work in the arts, establishing himself as a musician, sculptor, and writer. His most popular novel was Agatha Moudio’s Son. While working at UNESCO from 1961-74, he was able to become the head of the music department in Paris . This job allowed him to research and document traditional African music. Bebey released his first album in 1969. His music was primarily guitar-based, but he integrated traditional African instruments and synthesizers as well. Though he is currently praised for his music, his musical taste created controversy with his native music when he first started off. His style merged Cameroonian makossa with classical guitar, jazz, and pop, and was considered by critics to be groundbreaking, “intellectual, humorous, and profoundly sensual”. He sang in Duala, English, and French. Bebey helped launch the career of Manu Dibango. Bebey released more than 20 albums over his career, and was also known for his poetry, including Black tears (1963), a poem dedicated to the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. 𝗟𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗿 Bebey wrote novels, poetry, plays, tales, short stories, and nonfiction works. He began his literary career as a journalist in the 1950s and at one time worked as a journalist in Ghana and other African countries for the French radio network, Societe de radiodiffusion de la France d’outre-mer (SORAFOM). Bebey’s first novel, Le Fils d’Agatha Moudio (Agatha Moudio’s Son), was published in 1967 and awarded the Grand prix litteraire d’Afrique noire in 1968; it remains his best-known work. His novel, L’Enfant pluie (The Child of Rain), published in 1994, was awarded the Prize Saint Exupery. In addition to exploring childhood and adult experiences in his works, Bebey also wrote tales drawn from the African oral tradition. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Bebey

In recent times, there is reduced confidence in the ability of multilateral institutions and global treaty frameworks to effectively combat global issues. At a time when efficient global coordination is needed to tackle climate change, terrorism and a host of other threats to the prosperity and sustainability of future generations, how can global leaders work together to strengthen global governance? What are the barriers to more effective global governance and what are the tools that future government leaders need to leverage to solve international issues?
