No White Saviours is the name of a new Instagram account about how white people from the west can stop trying to save Africa—or other countries in the developing world.
According to the founders, “we never said 'no white people.' We just know you shouldn’t be the hero of the story.”
That’s an important message to hear. But that’s not why I am sharing it on this blog.
The reason I’m sharing it is because of the simple but neat way the BBC chose to interview the two women behind the campaign.
All the BBC did was a basic Q & A, posing the questions in text and then letting the women answer them in video.
There are no amazing graphics or photos; just two women talking.
Of course, the clip is edited for effect and length. But that happens in print or video.
Take a look. And if you are looking for simple and effective way to interview volunteers, recipients, staff, board members or others, consider giving this a try.
