We recently paid a visit to the Design Exchange in Toronto to check out an exhibition by South African photographer Guy Tillim titled, “Avenue Patrice Lumumba”. The collection takes its title from the revered Pan-African leader whose name adorns many buildings and streets across the continent much like Martin Luther King boulevards run through the inner cities of America. Just like MLK, Lumumba had a dream that he did not live to see come alive. He was assassinated a few months after his incendiary speech where he asserted his vision of a new Africa independent of the historical yoke of the coloniser. The year was 1960.
