Ugandan Climate Activist Nakate Says Photo Crop Was Racist

The Associated Press news agency's removal of Vanessa Nakate from a photograph taken with Greta Thunberg, Loukina Tille, Luisa Neubauer and Isabelle Axelsson in Davos did not just erase a photo, it erased a continent, Nakate says.  AP says it was a mistake and that they realize they "silenced Nakate's voice" and "will work hard" to learn from their actions.
