Please check it out here and tell us what you think :
It is also on Commons :
This video was a partnership between WikiAfrica, Goethe Institute and
It brought quite a few challenges... such as myself being completely
happy with the exact terms of the script, succeeding to get every
element of the video under a free licence including the background
music, getting a nice african women voice for the narrative, getting
curly hair rather than flat ones, identifying nice examples of western
as well as african concerns... etc. We tried to be as inclusive as possible.
Well, we hope you like it.
If you do... please litterally "like" the video and "like" our facebook page
A French version is currently being recorded and should follow shortly.
Last, we would love to see the video subtitled in many langages. If you
want to give a hand for the translation, please get in touch with us (by
email, or twitter, or facebook, or on our meta talk page :
I'll set up a page for translation on meta shortly.
