Kids’ show salutes African iden­tity

CityPress - - Trending -

Amid a sea of kids’ TV high­light­ing West­ern life and shows with lily-white car­toon char­ac­ters, a new an­i­mated show called Bino & Fino cel­e­brates African iden­tity. The ti­tle char­ac­ters are switched on, cu­ri­ous and play­fully ques­tion the world – gen­tly touch­ing on is­sues of race, gen­der and black iden­tity in a way that is ap­pro­pri­ate for chil­dren and builds a bank of in­dige­nous knowl­edge.

Cur­rently only avail­able via DVD or­der, the project in­tends to ex­pand and it’s our hope we’ll see it along­side other popular pro­grammes on our screens.

The web­site is full of tes­ti­mo­ni­als from par­ents who love the show. – Binwe Ade­bayo
