From Doctor Livingstone 150 years ago to the rock star Bono today, outsiders have championed foreign intervention in Africa through political, economic, and health care reforms. Though frequently exploitative, the relationship between Westerners and Africa is also often propelled by an almost irresistible urge to 'do good.' But underlying good intentions there often is a hierarchical belief that we, as outsiders, somehow know what is best for Africa.
