The Fierce Urgency of Now

The time to act is now. African leaders need to think critically about how they can generate hard currency, create employment opportunities, and encourage trade with other nations on the African continent and the world. African nations should be at the forefront of innovation and creative thinking in an urgent effort to forge a path to prosperity for their people.

Today, host, John Akhile, author of Unleashed: a New Paradigm of African Trade with the World, discusses how man-made impoverishment on the African continent can be overcome by thinking outside the box. Guided by a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., there is a fierce urgency of now for African nations to take action and create their own path to prosperity.
