About Media for African Diaspora Image
Media for African Diaspora Image Media for African Diaspora Image Who We Are THE PROBLEM: In the western world, Africa is often portrayed on television and in movies as a primitive land of poor villages and wild animals. Recurring images have conditioned outsiders to believe this is a land wrought by poverty, war and disease, with few redeeming qualities. Such depictions promote false, negative stereotypes, and sometimes harvest prejudice against Africans. While this is in no way a revelation, not much is often done about it. OUR VISION: A world in which all Human-beings will be not merely tolerant,but understanding of and for Diversity. OUR MISSION: Media for African Diaspora Image exists to re-brand Africa and advance its Diaspora through social message comedy shows, DVDs, film production, screening, broadcasting and distribution. We use the power of humor and film to laugh off the western media depictions of Africa. We strive to change their dominant perspective of Africa by raising public awareness of the fact that the African continent offers a lot more than the doom and gloom usually presented.
