Casa África has the honour of once again welcoming this extraordinary woman whom we met last year during the First Africa-Spain Meeting of Journalists. On that occasion, we had the opportunity to listen to her defending ideas such as that

“Now, more than ever, people are able to respond to the media. Narratives no longer belong to journalists»

Now we will have the opportunity to hear her again, in this new Casa África #ÁfricaEsNoticia conference programme which was created to bring the voices of Africans and Africanists closer to us, revealing new and unknown faces of the neighbouring continent.

The event is on 2 November at 7 p.m. in Casa África’s Nelson Mandela Auditorium and as always entry is free and open to all.
