8 PM EST - “The last four or five hundred years of European contact with Africa produced a body of literature that presented Africa in a very bad light and Africans in very lurid terms. The reason for this had to do with the need to justify the slave trade and slavery.” - Chinua Achebe
the revolution of the mind continues…
Is homosexuality African? Is the question of debate this week.
An article was published this week about Ugandan King Mwanga II who condemned several young men to death (the Martyrs) for denying him sex when they converted to Christianity.
This account has been verified by Ugandan historians and the President of Uganda alike – which has caused considerable controversy (considering Uganda’s recent anti-gay legislation)
Gay rights activists began a firestorm by saying this admission proves gay relations existed on the continent LONG before the European/Western invasion. Pan-Africanists are LIVID saying our ancestors would never be involved in something so amoral and “Un-African”
So…we debate it. As only MadMen can. Tuesday. 10pm
