Gen. Museveni-in power for 31 years now, with U.S.-backing

Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs will screen on Oct. 4, at 6PM, the powerful documentary "A Brilliant Genocide" which exposes the true story behind the rise of the brutal warlord Joseph Kony and the Ugandan government's brutal campaigns against the Acholi people. The one hour film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring:

Helen C. Epstein, whose "Another Fine Mess: America, Uganda and the War on Terror" explores the U.S. relationship with Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni and his involvement in five violent conflicts that erupted shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall in the Horn and Great Lakes regions of Africa. She teaches at Bard College and Columbia's School of Public and International Affairs and writes frequently for the New York Review of Books and other publications.

Ogenga Otunnu, an Associate Professor of History at DePaul University whose two volume study, "Crisis of Legitimacy and Political Violence in Uganda" (Palgrave 2016,2017) is the only academic work covering Uganda's entire history. He is an expert on the causes and consequences of forced migration, humanitarian emergencies and Africa and Black Diaspora studies.
