War, War Crimes, and War Criminals in Central Africa: The Perpetuation of Violence Amidst "Post" Colonial Globalization
Amultimedia presentation by Keith Harmon Snow
Followed by a workshop on careers in journalism and activism
Recognized for a decade of challenge to official narratives on war crimes and genocide, Keith Harmon Snow has served as a war correspondent, a genocide investigator for the United Nations, and a public speaker at college campuses, most notably in 2009 as the Regent’s Lecturer in Law and Society at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Snow will discuss his experiences in Rwanda, Uganda, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, where he was twice captured and detained by militias and had to swim across the Congo River and its three major tributaries. He is persona non grata in Rwanda and Ethiopia (due to his uncompromising position on state terror, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide) and has been threatened with lawsuits from war-profiteers, gun-runners, and multinational corporations. Keith Harmon Snow’s visit is sponsored by the Office of Student Life.
