Program Description

Event Details

On November 15th, 2017, the then President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe was removed from power via a military coup. Current President Emmerson Mnangagwa
faces a challenging transition following a leader who was both oppressive and beloved by many. Join Active Minds as we review Zimbabwe's history as a former British Colony, the nominally independent country of Rhodesia, and a 15 year civil war involving complicated race relations. We will also cover where the country may be heading as it seeks to find its path after nearly four decades under the dictatorial rule of Mugabe.
