This week on Ufahamu Africa, we commemorate the 60th anniversary of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON). We talk about football, politics, and more with Dr. Peter Alegi (aka @futbolprof), a professor of history at Michigan State University. He literally wrote the book on football in Africa. Our conversation with Dr. Peter Alegi begins at 5:25.
We invite you to listen and tell us what you think and what you want to hear in future episodes. For links to books and articles mentioned in the articles visit our links of the week here.
We thank Maia Majumder for our exit music this week. You can download her recording of “Strange Fruit” from SoundCloud. The song begins at 23:55.
