Princess Zindaba Nyirenda

 

Ta-Lakata: The Tears of Africa

 

Granddaughter of the Tumbaka tribe chief Mphamba of Lundazi in Zambia, Princess Zindaba “Zindie” Nyirenda was raised in an elite and privileged environment during Zambia’s economic boom years. As a young woman, Zindie relocated to the United States, and then watched in horror as life in her homeland rapidly disintegrated under economic devastation and the influx of AIDS/HIV. Unwilling to sit on the sidelines, Zindie founded a non-profit organization to equip and empower local leaders in remote areas and neglected villages of Africa. Today Princess Zindie is a graduate student at Roosevelt University and was keynote speaker at the 2007 World AIDS Day conference in Illinois.
