Are we the turning point generation?

May 17, 2014

Chude broke into national consciousness with his inspiring work at The Future Project. Since then, he has revealed other sides of his brilliance through his role in starting the Enough is Enough Nigeria coalition; establishing a media brand that sits pretty across traditional and new media spaces; extending the frontiers of The Future Project beyond Nigeria; and helping to shape national conversation with the power of his writing – on even controversial issues. With “Are we the turning point generation?”, Chude has wrapped his brilliance in timelessness and it is a gift I am personally grateful for. As he does when speaking, Chude’s words in “Are we the turning point generation?” will challenge readers to answer the central question in the affirmative – and hopefully inspire action.
