Helen Epstein - Another Fine Mess: America, Uganda and the War on Terror — in conversation with Lawrence Kiwanuka Nsereko, moderated by Shaka Ssali

Upcoming Event
Sunday, September 24, 2017 at 1:00 pm

A visiting professor of global public health and human rights at Bard College and author of The Invisible Cure, Epstein has been working in East Africa, primarily Uganda, for the last twenty years. During that time, the region has received some $20 billion of foreign aid, yet the quality of education, health care, and basic standards of living remain low. Epstein’s analysis of the situation centers on Uganda’s longtime dictator, Yoweri Museveni. She argues that his support for the West’s War on Terror has allowed him to channel funds meant for public services into shoring up his regime.

Epstein will be in conversation with Lawrence Kiwanuka Nsereko, an editor, journalist, democracy activist, former child soldier, and the inspiration for her book. The discussion will be moderated by Shaka Ssali, the host of Voice of America’s “Straight Talk Africa.”
