Genocide and White Supremacy Ideology in the Great Lakes Region
Mr. Keith Harmon Snow
Thursday, September 30, 2010
12:30 – 1:45 p.m.
Student Union Room 304 A/B
University of Connecticut, Storrs
Mr. Snow will discuss the recently leaked UN report about genocide in the great lakes region and white supremacy ideology and the state of Africa.
Africa is undergoing crises on a revolutionary scale. Some of the crises are attributable to internal factors within the continent. But to a large extent, most are due to a series of massive and contiguous attacks by agents of white supremacy ideology and projects. In the grand scheme of the white supremacist projects, the media have played a critical role in masking the agents of violence against African people.
In his multimedia presentation, Mr. Snow will disclose the types of violence, structural and otherwise, that perpetuates white privilege beginning with the commerce in Africans by Europeans (the Slave Trade) and has continued through both overt and covert military, economic, political and ideological violence. The lecture is based on his experiences in 17 countries in Africa, where he documented wars and slavery in the Great Lakes Region and investigated for the United Nations genocide wars in Ethiopia and Southern Sudan.
Mr. Snow is an independent freelance journalist and investigator. Entirely dependent on individual donations and voluntary contributions to sustain this work, he has lived under the poverty line for over a decade, while continuing to work as a volunteer for three non-profit humanitarian organizations. On his missions to Africa, Keith has provided food, medical supplies and basic health necessities to many indigent and suffering people. He is a believer in direct action, non-violent social protest, and civil disobedience.
