Nolen: Out of Africa

Globe and Mail Africa correspondent Stephanie Nolen is taking up a new post in New Delhi and leaving Africa. The Globe published a remarkable first-person piece in which Nolen “bids farewell to a place she’s come to love, she reflects on how it has changed, and how it changed her.”

She writes of covering African stories “knowing I was struggling against a limited Western attention span, with its defensive and weary expectation of yet more bad news — and trying not to succumb to that sensation myself.”
