Globalizing the Culture War

Rev. Kapya Kaoma, Project Director, Political Research Associates; Anglican Priest from Zambia Leading Churches in Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts
Sandip Roy, Editor, New America Media - Moderator

Kaoma asserts that Africa has become a key theater in the U.S. culture wars, that the cultivation of African clerics as proxies by the U.S. Right has linked the human rights struggles of sexual minorities in both regions. He recently spoke before a congressional hearing of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission and appeared on the Rachel Maddow show to discuss the proposed “Anti Homosexuality Bill” now pending in the Ugandan parliament.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on July 6, 2010.
