A documentary on the life of acclaimed African Writer ("The Art of Ama Ata Aidoo") has been released by the African Women Development Fund, in Accra (Ghana).
Ama Ata Aidoo is an icon, a force of nature advocating for social change, justice and gender equality.
I had the pleasure to meet Ama Ata Aidoo within the framework of Women for AFrica Foundation's projects in Ghana. I have taken as a gift every one of the inspiring conversations I have had with her. I have witnessed the respect she enjoys from African women leaders and women writers. Despite her physical fragility, her words and her head remain excepcionatlly clear (the clarity that comes from wisdom), firm and strong, committed to African women and to women writers. Her wonderful stories will illuminate generations of women from Africa and all over the world.
