Ep35. A conversation with Boniface Mwangi on photography, running for office, and more

Boniface Mwangi speaks to an auditorium of students and faculty at Amherst College, Oct. 25, 2017. (Kim Yi Dionne)

This week’s episode features a conversation with award-winning photojournalist and political activist Boniface Mwangi (@bonifacemwangi). Mwangi recently ran to be a member of parliament in Starehe constituency, which is in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city. Thanks to the efforts of friend of the podcast Dr. Chipo Dendere (@drDendere), Mwangi recently visited the Pioneer Valley to give a lecture at Amherst College. While he was here, I sat down with him and asked about his recent campaign for office and about his book, Unbounded, which features stories about his life juxtaposed with a sample of some of his amazing photography. In addition to being sold in Kenya, Unbounded is currently available in the United States via Amazon. Our conversation begins at 2:14.
