http://democracynow.org – As Ebola cases surge in Sierra Leone and the confirmed overall toll tops 5,000, we discuss West Africa’s growing epidemic and the world’s lackluster response with the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Angélique Kidjo. A native of Benin, Kidjo is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, co-founder of the Batonga Foundation for Girls Education, and author of the memoir “Spirit Rising: My Life, My Music.” Her latest album, “EVE,” is dedicated to the Women of Africa. Last week, Kidjo wrote a piece in The New York Times headlined “Don’t Let Ebola Dehumanize Africa.”
