We're Building a Greater Africa
The TF Interviews is a series of discussions, hosted by Professor Toyin Falola at the University of Texas at Austin, that aim to amplify the voices of Africa and the African Diaspora. In order to fully participate in the present we must first understand the past. Our goal with this series is to use history and historical analysis to contextualize today’s events.
This series aims to tackle topics and issues that affect Africans by talking with key figures and experts in the realm of African affairs. We hope that by inviting these prominent figures from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, we will inspire and ignite vibrant discussion among young Africans.
The aim of the TF interviews is to amplify African voices, and appreciate the Continent's diversity. Now, Africa speaks!
