Episode 8: The African Narrative in the US: Rising or Falling?
On January 20, 2017, the US political landscape changed. As President Donald Trump took office, a different US foreign policy began to emerge. Many of these policies will affect Africa. For some, the administration’s actions are causing deep concern, while others see a potential for new opportunities. Africa Today TV’s special series looks at how the new administration will engage with Africa, and perhaps more importantly, how Africa will engage with the new administration. Join us as we discuss and debate the continually evolving US-Africa relationship while examining topics from both American and African perspectives.
Sundays at 10am, rebroadcasted Sundays at 6pm and 10pm, and Tuesdays at Thursdays at 6pm and 10pm. (All times are EST). Episodes are available online after the premier broadcast.
