The Other Story by Dr Judy Dlamini
The Other Story is an invitation to fireside chat with African Achievers, men and women of different ages, different backgrounds from different parts of the continent.
These are the leaders and entrepreneurs that have achieved in their personal capacity but had also gone out of their way to lift others. These are trendsetters from different sectors – Gloria Serobe, Mama Zanele Mbeki, Sizwe Nxasana, Dr Richard Maponya, Fred Swaniker, Ali Mufuruki to mention just a few. This book seeks to tell the “The Other Story”, a story of what Africans are capable of – no matter where you find them in the world, no matter what age, gender, qualification they hold and no matter what sector of the economy they operate in.
It’s not the complete story, because there are many other African stories that make one not to be so proud as an African. However, we read about these all the time. The purpose of this book is to tell the other story, a story that humanises us, that repairs our broken dignity, that empowers us and the generations that follow.
“These are the stories that I want my grandchildren to read over and over again, until they see themselves and other Africans in them.” – Judy Dlamini.
