Resistance and Liberation – History of Africa with Zeinab Badawi

african history

Zeinab Badawi makes a huge and broad sweep across Africa examining the struggle for freedom, even in the face of bloody crackdowns with:

  • A veteran Mau Mau fighter in Kenya,
  • A member of the resistance in Algeria’s brutal war of independence,
  • From one African president whose ancestor fought the French and from
  • The grandson of the Mahdi who defeated Britain’s General Gordon.

And she talks about that heady time of independence with the families of three of Africa’s best-known independence leaders:

  • Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah,
  • Congo’s Patrice Lumuba and
  • Senegal’s Leopold Senghor as well as the son of the legendary
  • Nigerian singer Fela Kuti.

With very best wishes,
