Episode 451 African Culture in the World

Brydon Gombay lived in Uganda for several years until the rise of Idi Amin made it necessary to leave. Martin Klein is a retired professor of African History, University of Toronto. Much of his research as a political scientist was in Senegal. We discuss the languages, music, philosophy, religion, and political dynamics of Africa, and the impact some of the leading cultural figures are having elsewhere in the world.
