Ep. 123: A conversation with Liliane Umubyeyi and Amah Edoh on reparations

Earlier this year, Liliane Umubyeyi and Amah Edoh joined Cornell University’s Institute for European Studies to talk about their collaborative work on reparations, especially related to Belgium and the Democratic Republic of Congo. We share selected excerpts of their talk in this week’s episode, and you can find a link to watch the full panel in this week’s show notes.

In the news wrap, Kim and Rachel talk about the arrest of former South African President Jacob Zuma and the subsequent protests. Plus, more about COVID vaccines on the African continent.
