Scan the news for headlines about Africa, and what you get is predominantly wars, rapes, spreading HIV, poverty and national debts, but it's not the whole story. Filmmaker Carol Pineau says the rest of the story involves growing businesses and returns on investment as high as 144 percent. Pineau--who grew up in Shaker Heights--tells the story in two films: Africa: Open for Business (2005) and Africa: Investment Horizons (2008). Pineau is in town to be inducted into the Shaker Heights High School Alumni Hall of Fame, and she and others will join us Tuesday morning at nine to talk about the good news from Africa.
