Poster Workshop / Boniface Mwangi: Photojournalist + Social Activist

  • Digital Media Center/Room 104, 149 York Street New Haven, CT, 06510 United States (map)
Poster workshop with Boniface Mwangi award winning photojournalist + social activist.

One of the most invincible, indomitable and unassailable men in Kenya, is how one of Boniface Mwangi’s 162,000 Twitter followers described him in a recent tweet, in response to yet another threat of arrest received by this young, rising political firebrand. And what a firebrand he is. Few hold a candle to Mwangi as a critically engaged social and political activist.

With a blend of art, youthful energy and critical expression, he has created a socio-political activism that not only communicates his trenchant critique of Kenya’s political class, but has also brought it global attention.

As a young activist, he has helped the country’s youth not only listen to, see and read his political and social activism, but find their voices of dissent, too. new african
