Africa is “the moral reservoir of human diversity, human aid, human dignity.” – Binyavanga Wainaina (1971-2019)// .
Wainaina died while we were still in Africa. He was hailed as one of the greatest Kenyan thinkers, authors, and activists for gay rights. In 2014, @time listed him in their annual “100 Most Influential Persons in the World”. Wainaina embodied a politics of truth, in many aspects of his life. As a self-declared pan-Africanist and Afropolitan, he was committed to reclaiming African cultures and traditions to free the continent from colonial and neo-colonial social, political, and religious forces. //
Our time in Kenya 🇰🇪 was far too short (just under a week in Nairobi), but it was one of delight as we made new friends, met our new adoptive family members, and explored Nairobi National Park. //
