June 6 2010 - 50 Years of African Independence
In this episode of African Perspectives, we explore the liberation movements on the 1960's on the continent. We interviewed Ameth Lo from the Group for Research and Initiative for the Liberation of Africa, on the work and legacy of Patrice Lumumba, freedom fighter and first Prime Minister of independent Congo. We also spoke with Gerald Horne, professor of African American History at Houston University about the Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya.
Here is the show.
