Leslie Dodson: Don’t misrepresent Africa

Real narratives are complicated: Africa isn’t a country, and it’s not a disaster zone, says reporter and researcher Leslie Dodson. In her talk, she calls for journalists, researchers and NGOs to stop representing entire continents as one big tragedy. (Filmed at TEDxBoulder.)

Leslie Dodson’s work has taken her from Latin America to Indonesia covering international finance, economics, and politics.
