'An African's Message for America'

In this short documentary, 2011 Human Rights Fellow Boniface Mwangi raises crucial questions about the intentions and implications of young Americans volunteering abroad. Mwangi is an outstanding exemple of taking a risk and maximizing personal capacity to create truly sustainable impact. 

Our Photography & Human Rights program enables regional activists to attend an intensive six-week program on documentary storytelling in New York, to return home with an expanded network and toolset to continue working on pressing social justice issues - and to engage public attention beyond temporary media frenzies.
