The Unsung Hero
August 12, 2015

The labour of our heroes past…

We kicked off Day 2 with similar excitement and energy. On this day we focused on Nigeria’s history, exploring the independence struggle and the different important actors of the struggle. Participants were tasked to create timelines of any 2 nationalist heroes. The timeline was to contain the brief bio of the hero, defining moments, legacies and any trivia.

There were over 20 entries received yesterday, with participants exploring the timelines of different nationalist heroes ranging from Tafawa Balewa to Funmilayo Ransome Kuti. Below is a creative video created by Tona Akerele to explain the timelines of her two nationalist heroes.

Today we are celebrating all the unsung heroes in our lives. They could be police officers, traffic wardens, security guards or cleaners. All you have to do is share a gift with them, take a picture and upload.

Thank you and we look forward to all your entries.
