‘The boy who harnessed the wind:’ When telling Black stories, it is important to go beyond stories of trauma, slavery, and colonization. While these aspects of our history and present lives shouldn’t be ignored, we also want to share stories of hope and inspiration.
‘The boy who harnessed the wind’ tells the true story of a Malawian, William, who despite being kicked out of school because his parents couldn’t afford the tuition, managed to build a windmill for his community so they could survive a famine. William Kamkwamba is now an author and inventor.
