Boukary Konate was born in a tiny village near Segou in Mali in a family of farmers. He lived his adult life in Bamako the capital of Mali but maintained strong ties with his fellow villagers. this pic by his friend Eddie Avilla is a favorite. His consuming passion was saving the villages ancient culture and traditions. And ushering new technologies in the neglected rural zones of Africa for those kids. Mister Smile. That was our Boukary. #instagv #mali #africa [1]
