Digital Participation: The Last Kings of Africa

We have talked about the governments in Africa in class, and I found something related to this topic. “Austria-based art historian and photographer Alfred Weidinger has traveled across Africa in search of royalty.” I think this is a cool project because we seldom know the kings in Africa. At the end of the news, Weidinger claims that “the biggest threat to Africa’s last remaining monarchs isn’t local government, but modernity.” This actually does make sense because cell phones or the internet allow people to get information more easily and quickly.
