As a young African woman I consider myself blessed to be a part of this generation. Ours is a generation of women who embody beauty, courage, resilience and hope. The art pieces in ‘The Best Of Africa’ represent these realities of many women living in Africa.

What do these stories mean to you? How do you intend to shape your generation? Although it’s difficult to choose only one, please vote for your favorite story by posting a comment in the conversation.

Hello, I watched the film called Shouting silent tonight. I understand your emphasis on the loss of a mother and all the things that mothers do for their children. It is terrific to see that many of the children valued education and that they saw this as a possible way out of their poverty, but I wonder how things are going for this next generation growing up in Africa. Are there opportunities for them, with education? It would be good to know about programs that may be in place to help these children with their day to day tasks, finding food, and the potential for a future, so that they too may not fall into the same traps. Are there programs to advance the interests of women, so that they may not be dependent on men (as with the taxi driver with many girlfriends, or the husband who drank and ruled the house). Best wishes, from Australia, Joan G

1. "what does the beginning of Pan Africanism feel like," Leslie in few minutes managed to tell us the inner struggles of the new African generation in their quest to find their lost Identity.

2. "cold Wind on my face" Mary Kimani's Poem tell us of the present African Headlines.

Xoliswa Sithole and Renee Rosen's film "Shouting Silent" is my favorite! It is beautifully made and so important. If you haven't already watched the film, you should : http://imaginingourselves.imow.org/pb/Story.aspx?G=1&C=0&id=1575&lang=1

I vote for Tessa Lewin's "Conscious Dreaming" because the images and the colors of the video have enchanted me while the sultry voice and the siren-like woman's song, the words of which I do not understand, have pierced my heart.

I also vote for "Ras Star" by Wanuri Kahiu because I think it has a great plot, is really well filmed, and most important, speaks about the Kenyan society, Kenyan issues, and Kenyan people.

What strikes me as I read these stories is the resistance to things women have being told and even imbibe as truth. I love Xoliswa's expression of 'Shouting Silent' and Wanuri's story of a girl wanting to be something other than what she's being told to be in 'Ras Star'.In Nasra's story 'The Unmanageable Generation' she speaks of things like education, husband sharing chores as something that would never happen in her mother's generation and this is so true. While some issues mentioned in some of these stories might seem over our head i certain societies, they are real in many African countries.

I invite you to read over and over (like I have) these stories. At first they may seem just that......stories but take a minute to reflect and put yourself in their shoes. You might find it a sobering experience or perhaps a reason to give thanks for where you are at (not taking anything for granted).

Don't forget to vote for your favorite story!!!
