Be prepared to change the way you think about Africa! Jake Bright has a new book out that recasts the African continent as an emerging powerhouse. Bright details cross-cutting trends prompting Silicon Valley venture capital funds and firms like GE, IBM, and Proctor & Gamble, as well as global players like China, to make major investments in African economies, and describes how Africans are stimulating Milan runways, Hollywood studios, and London pop charts! The old narrative of an Africa disconnected from the global economy is fading and a wave of transformation driven by business, modernization, and a new cadre of remarkably talented Africans is thrusting the continent from the world’s margins to the global mainstream. Presented by Traverse City native Jake Bright, Whitehead Fellow at The Foreign Policy Association and a contributing writer for The Financial Times.
The Next Africa is a paradigm-shifting guide to the events, trends, and people reshaping Africa’s relationship to the world.
