Bono hits Vanity Fair

BARACK OBAMAI love reading magazines.  And it’s something that I try to do sparingly.  I actually can’t remember the last time I bought a magazine for myself.  However, recently I was compelled to buy the latest issue of Vanity Fair.

It turns out, Bono joined this issue as co-editor of the magazine for a special issue on Africa – and its amazing!  I highly encourage everyone to pick up a copy (good luck trying to pick a cover) to make tangible the experience that was intended by this issue.  At the very least buy the issue to see the haplogroups mapped out on on the magazine masthead.  Also check out the complementary coverage on the Vanity Fair website and make sure to spend time with the interactive map of Africa.

The magazine features 20 different covers photographed by Annie Leibovitz portraying high-visibility individuals that all have some connection to Africa.  In the images one person is telling something to the other person, who then tells something to the next person.  It’s a game of telephone over being played over the various cover photos.

The game of telephone is a call to action, not only in Africa, but in our homes.  It’s time for us to step up and demonstrate to the world that America believes in the freedom and democracy that it represents to everyone.  What will you do?
