We are the "Heart of Darkness"

Featured Guest(s):
Robin Philpot, Aimable Mugara,

Chinuya Achebe was famous in part for his rejection of Joseph Conrad's position in the Western canon. Achebe strongly argued that "Heart of Darkness" was a thoroughly racist work that actively dehumanized Africans to an extent beyond Conrad's contemporaries. A staple in undergraduate classes, it should be properly deconstructed. Instead, it is used as a template to describe conflicts in Africa.

Aimable Mugara of RwandaHumanRights.com covers major stories centered on Rwanda. A woman running against a U.S. client remains in prison, and the UN plays favourites as Congo is invaded.
