Amandla Favoriting : Playlist from July 26, 2023

Hosted by:

Gwendolyn Schulman







On the air since 1987, Amandla is a weekly African current affairs program founded in response to racist and misleading mainstream media coverage of Southern Africa.

Since then, the team has expanded the show’s mandate to cover the entire continent, to take stories past the headlines of the mainstream media to show the complexity, creativity, courage and vision of Africans as they confront their colonial past and neo-colonial present.

Other collaborators include Sama Elibyari, Mouloud Idir, Roberto Nieto, Zahra Moloo and Sophie Toupin.
