Multi- award winning American singer and song writer, Taylor Swift came all the way to an undisclosed location in Africa to shoot her new musical video titled ‘Wildest Dreams’. But for a video shot in Africa, a lot seemed to be missing, for one—there was not a single black person in sight. Even though the video was shot in a beautiful safari featuring animals; an elegant lion and flashes of a running horse and a beautiful waterfall, was that really all Africa had to offer in 1950?
The video which is supposed to “tell a tragic love story ” was directed by Joesph Kahn with two African Americans- Jil Hardin and Chancler Haynes.
However, just in case Taylor and her team were unaware, here are a couple of pictures which shows what Africa really looked like in 1950.
What do these pictures have in common other than the skin colour?
