NEWZBEAT: March eighth was international women’s day
so we prepared a great show for today.
With the help of three special guests
we can finally succeed in our quest.
We will learn what being a great woman means
through the lives of amazing African queens.

NEWZBEAT: Black Panther Success Puts Spotlight on Africa

- Please tell me you watched Black Panther

- Of course, I’ve watched it three times over.
That movie put a positive light on Africa
and made over 360 million dollars.
There’s a lot to love about the world of Wakanda.

NEWZBEAT: South Africa’s First Runway Model in a Wheelchair

Life in South Africa can be far from fair
for a black woman confined to a wheelchair.
Many look down on people with disabilities
refusing to recognize their capabilities.
But Lebohang Monyatsi is in action-
A live example to change this perception.
She’s Africa’s first runway model in a wheelchair
and this is the story of how she got there.
