3,000 Words
Quoted in the foreword. We shouldn't look at ourselves as "The Dark Continent" but rather as the Land of Light. The land of so many possibilities.

For those interested and who've shown great support for this, some info from the publishers:
So, the IMAGINE AFRICA 500 anthology is out, (as in printed copies), but will launch in April in Malawi. The book will be released online by 30th April 2016.
The University of Michigan is set to teach the anthology in one of its English classes.
