I have been somewhat critical of Oprah over the years for some of the portrayals of Black men she has shown (and for catering to a mostly white audience). However, it is time to give credit where it is due. Oprah is doing much good in South Africa, from donating $1 million dollars to the Community and Individual Development Association in Johannesburg, to her efforts to reduce AIDS in the country. This is PanAfricanism at its finest! The attention that Oprah is giving to South Africa is sure to inspire others to invest as well. This is an example for African Americans, and Africans throughout the Diaspora to follow. South Africa has always been the one country that many African Americans have seemed to identify with. Our recent histories with Jim Crow & Apartheid have mirrored each other, and African Americans were influential in bringing down Aparheid in South Africa (through boycotts & protests). However, the rest of Africa needs the same attention. We have the power to shape countries & change destiny!
