Yesterday the 2014 Africa Progress Report, released by The Africa Progress Panel, shed light on the promise of this wealthy continent. By outlining the cooperation required to overcome her major challenges, the report makes the goals of sustained growth and improved life for all Africans, attainable.
But for many of us, the insights and hope of the report are negated by the recent dastardly deeds of Boko Haram in Nigeria. Thanks to The Brookings Institute for helping shed light on this group and it's activities in this recent feature. As MLK warned : "Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
