Nelle parole di Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:«And the idea of an ”us”, a collective identity, becomes unquestionable. Sometimes the boundary of this identity widens, as it did during the 2006 World Cup when Nigeria did not qualify. And so, for one intense day while Ghana played the United States, I became Ghanaian. I watched with my Nigerian best friend Uju, hugging each other and dancing when Ghana finally won. “Some of our boys started playing this game without shoes,” Uju said proudly. “Our boys” were, of course, the Ghanaians. […]I would be thrilled if we win all our matches but I would not despair if we don’t, because I would then aim my hope, borne of an expanded nationalism, at our other boys» from Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Algeria, Ghana.Mai come ai mondiali, si sente questo forte senso di appartenenza al Continente facendo il tifo per ogni squadra africana che partecipa al torneo.Ed oltre a sostenere i Leoni Indomabili del Camerun, gli Elefanti della Costa d’Avorio, le Super Aquile della Nigeria, i Fennec dell’Algeria e le Stelle Nere del Ghana, tiferemo anche per gli Azzurri.

Ralph Ziman’s mural in Venice Beach entitled “Yarned and Dangerous” 

Part of an extensive series of works, this mural deals with the international arms trade and Africa: a trade that for the most part only goes in one direction.  Into Africa.

I had six Zimbabwean artists use traditional African beads and wire to  manufacture several hundred replica bead/guns like AK-47s, as well as several replica bead/general purpose machine guns (GPMGs), along with the ammunition. 
In response to the guns sent into that culture, the mural represents an aesthetic, anti-lethal cultural response, a visual export out of Africa.   And the bead/guns themselves, manufactured in Africa, are currently being shipped to the USA and Europe.” X
