We met Oluseun Onigbinde at our workshop in Guinea a few months ago. The workshop brought together artists from all over West Africa to learn creative activism strategies to combat corruption, the most significant problem facing West Africa today. Oluseun gave a fascinating presentation about how corruption works, and how citizens can stop it. This is relevant in the United States right now, and in most places in the world, unfortunately.
How do we win against corruption?
