By Jeremy Gaunt LONDON (Reuters) - A new superhero is fighting for freedom, justice and the Nigerian way in the mean streets of Lagos. He is the inspiration for Jones's latest "blufunk" album release and, unusually, the subject of a graphic novel published along with it. The idea, Jones says, is to show off Nigeria's premier city to the outside world - as a place that is as arresting as Paris or London, yet also transformed by unshared oil wealth into a blight of shanty towns and homelessness. "Nigeria is one of the fastest growing economies but none of that is trickling down," Jones told Reuters in a telephone interview. More »Meet Nigeria's Captain Rugged - a superhero who can dance

By Piya Sinha-Roy LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - When Halle Berry and Denzel Washington won the best-acting Oscar categories and Sidney Poitier was honored with a lifetime achievement award in 2002, the night was a watershed for black actors in Hollywood. Since then the debate about Hollywood diversity among the African American community has continued to ebb and flow, but one fact remains constant: nearly all black actors are still only being recognized by the Academy Awards for playing specifically black characters in film. Four movies from 2013 have served to animate that conversation during Hollywood's awards season: "12 Years A Slave," "Lee Daniels' The Butler," "Fruitvale Station" and "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom." Only the first, Steve McQueen's historical drama, made it to the Oscars. More »Racial barriers still hold back Hollywood's black talent
