Dayo Olopade
The Bright Continent
Breaking Rules and Making Change in Modern Africa
An exciting new voice offers a fresh portrait of Africans thriving in theface of adversity, showing the way forward for development on thecontinent and beyond.
For years Dayo Olopade struggled to reconcile the American media
image of Africa as warring, impoverished, and pitiful with the Africashe
s known since childhood: resilient, joyful, and innovative, a continentof impassioned community leaders. She reports firsthand on theexplosion of commercial opportunities and technological innovationsthat are improving outcomes for families, children, and the environment.
The Bright Continent 
joins the conversation started by authorssuch as Jeffrey Sachs, Nicholas Kristof, and Dambisa Moyo. Olopaderejects stale and ineffectual foreign interventions, arguing that theincreasingly globalized challenges the continent faces can and must beaddressed with the tools Africans are already using to solve theseproblems themselves. In many ways, Africa
s model of doing more with
—of working around dysfunctional institutions to establish stronginformal networks—can be a powerful model for the rest of the world.Behind the dire headlines, Olopade discovers many convincing rays of hope.
