African Dynasties S01E01: Winnie Madikizela Mandela

It’s about time that Africans told their own story, and some Zimbabwean content creators have stepped to the challenge.

African Stories

For Africa day this year, Unthinq TV launches the first episode of “African Dynasties”, a short 2D animated series focusing on African icons and the stories that have brought them to the public eye. The series is inspired by a desire to share the stories of Africa with the world, and to create an audience for locally created digital content.

Female unsung heroes

The producers of the show say, “Our first episode is Winnie Madikizela Mandela. We decided to begin with a motherly figure. We have a special spot for female unsung heroes.”
At ilizwi263, we also have a soft spot for the unsung female heroes in our society, and likewise believe in telling authentic African stories. Hence we are very excited about this new show.

Check out the episode below, and tell us what you think. Would you like to see more? Which icons should they do next?
