Kenyan Veterans of the Second World War


We have also been working with a team of Kenyan filmmakers who are working a documentary on the experiences of surviving African veterans of the Second World War.  Victoria Mutheu, Sagwa Chabeda, and Stan Barua have already put together an extremely promising and highly polished series of sample interviews that serves as an excellent example of what their final documentary will look like.  AFAS is assisting this this team by helping to research and produce more of these sample interviews with an eye to putting together a major funding proposal. Additionally, Ms. Mutheu and her team will join our oral history workshops via Skype.  This, in effect, will create a virtual international community of scholars all working on various aspects of Africanist oral history.
