Ory Okolloh: The Making of an African Activist

Erik Hersman (of the White African blog) shared this link on the Ushahidi Facebook group.

The Kenyan lawyer-blogger-activist Ory Okolloh talks at the 2007 TED Global conference in Tanzania about growing up in Kenya, her work as an activist, lawyer and blogger and what drives her in the work that she does. Aside from being more community-minded and thinking about the role that we can play in uplifting our community, she talks about using the power of blogs and other Internet tools to share our stories so that we don't find people telling them inaccurately for us.

it does make a lot of sense that we should tell our stories with our blogs.
