Global Santa Fe Book Club: Africa is Not a Country by Dipo Faloyin

The stories Faloyin shares are by turns joyful and enraging; proud and optimistic for the future even while they unequivocally confront the obstacles systematically set in place by former colonial powers. Brimming with humor and wit, filled with political insights, and, above all, infused with a deep love for the region, Africa Is Not a Country celebrates the energy and particularity of the continent’s different cultures and communities, treating Africa with the respect it deserves.

Dipo Faloyin is a senior editor at VICE, where he focuses on race, culture, and identity around the world. His writing has appeared in Dazed, Prospect, and HuffPost. Born in Chicago, raised in Lagos, he now lives in London.

The Book Club meets 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm MDT o the first Tuesday of each month at the Global Santa Fe conference room, 413 Grant Avenue, Suite D. Participants may also tune in by Zoom. The link for the Zoom meeting will be sent with the email reminder prior to the meeting. Light refreshments are serve for in-person attendees.
