Summary/Abstract: The main purpose of this article is to discuss how Ryszard Kapuściński and Jean Hatzfeld present the major problems of contemporary Africa. My intention is to show how both authors write about the dilemmas of multiculturalism in the (post)modern world. I want to present the attitude of Hatzfeld and Kapuściński towards the Other, their methods of evaluation of the African reality as well as the way they defi ne the responsibilities and tasks of the postmodern mass media.
