Here’s the first in my Afritravelers series from my friend Doron du Toit who recently hitch-hiked through Africa solo with just his tent and his backpack. […]

I love this TED talk by South African music legend,  Hugh Masekela on heritage.  The video is 17 minutes and definitely worth the watch, not only for its inspirational message but also for the great music. In the video, Bra Hugh, as he is fondly known, says that Africans are losing their heritage because of politics, religion, […]
