The colonial encounter
between Europeans and Africans
did not always end with Europeans triumphing.
Either at first, or later.

Check out this fascinating moment
in the history of
colonial encounters between Europeans and Africans:

From 1557 to 1632,
#Jesuit missionaries from Portugal and Spain
endeavored to convert the #Ethiopians
from their ancient form of #Christianity
to Roman #Catholicism
After fifty years of failing to convert Ethiopians,
the Portuguese sent a new group of Jesuits to Ethiopia in 1603,
including a priest named Pedro Paez,
whose diplomacy and sympathy for the
tenets of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church
enabled him to convert the emperor.

Today's #P4P Grant spotlight falls on yet another vital and timely project, led by Assefa Fiseha and Nicole Beardsworth (@NixiiB), and examining #Ethiopia's youth and their relationship with state and federal politics.
Young #Ethiopians affected by recent protests in the country form an integral part of this research: they will be trained in ethnographic video-making to help express their unfiltered views on access to political representation and representatives.
These ethnographic films will then form the foundation for conversations and advocacy with state and federal level politicians, in order to improve their engagement with, and outreach amongst, #Ethiopia's youth and make them part of critical reform processes in the country.
