Africa is a fascinating place. It is home to millions of people who can only be described as masters of survival. Among them are remarkable individuals who have excelled in the most challenging of environments, from the deserts of Sahara to the highest offices in the United Nations. Yet the story that comes out of Africa is often one of war, hunger and crisis.
Reality Bites shifts this focus. For a decade, the authors - two journalists and a photographer - have crisscrossed Africa to visit many of the hotspots that made headlines. But rather than letting themselves be absorbed by misery, they have looked for people who insist on making a positive difference.
In 14 often thought-provoking stories, we meet people who were busy putting Africa on a new track even before politicians coined the label 'African Rennaissance.'
