Launch of 'Africa United: The road to Twenty Ten'


The Amsterdam Arena

How exciting to launch a book of African journalism in the Amsterdam Arena. Africa United: The road to Twenty Ten showcases some of the best work that has come out of the Twenty Ten project so far, so it was certainly a milestone in the project for all of us.

Edited by Stefan Verwer, Marc Broere and Chris de Bode and published by KIT Publishers, the book is an Everyman’s poignant guide to the role of football in Africa, as told by writers and photographers from across Africa.

Andrew Esiebo, a Twenty Ten participant whose photographs appear in the book, presented the book to Ajax footballers Maarten Stekelenburg and Eyong Enoh.

Guest speaker Guy Berger, head of the School of Journalism and Media Studies at Rhodes University

Africa United can be ordered through KIT Publishers.
