1957 TV Show, High School Exchange: Ethiopia, Nigeria, Ghana (Gold Coast) , South Africa. Subject: Prejudice.

This is a very interesting conversation between four students between the ages of 15 and 17.

Though some of the terms used may be sensitive in 2021 the subject and discussion is fascinating ………could you imagine a 15 or 16 year old having this conversation today?

Representing Nigeria is 16 year old …..YES, 16 year old !!!! Boniface Offokaja he would go on to work for the Eastern Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation (ENBC), Radio Biafra as it was known during the war years, East Central State Broadcasting Service (ECBS), then a Director General of Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS) before retiring in 1984

Happy New Year Everybody!

The year 2020 was definitely challenging and often brutal. But in all things we give thanks to the Almighty.

Many people lost loved ones, businesses, homes as a result of Covid-19 but somehow, through it all we gained community.

We discovered how resilient we could be and new heroes emerged, like frontline health care workers , refuse collectors, delivery workers, those who subjected themselves to trials to help find a vaccine.

Thank you 🙏🏽

I pray 2021 will be a better year for us all.

I pray to God to immerse those who are mourning and suffering the loneliness of bereavement in his love and lead them through this darkness.

I pray all projects tagged as failure and loss in 2020 are not gone but delayed and will come in 2021.

Here’s to a better, healthy and prosperous new year !

🥂 ♥️🥂♥️
