Hats off to the Daily Beast for presenting a different way of looking at african women, and in words of a woman from Liberia, the activist Leymah Gbowee.
Her first sentences in her debut column in the Daily Beast say much about the sorry state of media images of African women in the U.S. — the strong medicine needed to correct the situation.
“I’m so tired of seeing photographs of depressed-looking African women with sagging breasts,” Gbowee writes. “I know from experience that African women can be absolute hell-raisers. We have no other choice.”
