#CAJ15 Keynote: Chika Oduah

The world has changed a lot since powerful nations relinquished control of their colonies, but has journalism changed? If so, how much? During the colonial era, journalists from the Western world told the stories of faraway lands. They shaped the narrative of Africa as the Dark Continent, the exotic Middle East and the mystic Far East. Today, Western journalists are still largely shaping the narrative that the world hears about the developing world. It's time to equip, empower and amplify the voices of local journalists from Zambia, Thailand, Cape Verde and beyond to reach the global community to present more accurate portrayals of life in the developing world.
