African Hashtag Activism

CULANTH 185S

The technological leapfrogging of the last three decades introduced mobile and smartphone technologies to Africans radically altering the modes of organizing available to women, members of the LGBTQI+ community, and other vulnerable groups. But beyond giving voice to local concerns, African opinions and perspectives are also directed towards larger conversations about climate change action, resistance to US hegemony, and the role China plays in African development.
