Homo-fear in Africa

EdwinOb&w604x357

A detailed debrief from journalist Edwin Okong’o about the fragile state of LGBT civil rights in Uganda and other African countries. The human rights spotlight has been focused on this region since 2009, when legislation was introduced in Uganda to punish homosexuality by death. As a Kenyan-American journalist and co-host of KALW’s “Africa Mix” music program, Okong’o also has a bead on the issue within the Bay Area African communities. He is also a UC Berkeley educator and a stand-up comedian and satirist with a blog on HuffPo.com. Marilyn Pittman hosts. (Aired live Thursday, 1/3/13)
