Inside Heart of Diamonds

WBAI-FM's Wuyi Jacobs recently produced a series of shows about the Congo for his program, AfroBeat Radio. The last installment included a long conversation with me about Heart of Diamonds and how the book reflects the true Congo. Wuyi also asked me about my travels in Africa and how Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness influenced Heart of Diamonds.

The program aired May 16, 2009, as part of WBAI's fundraiser. To hear a 26-minute excerpt (mp3), click here.

Previous programs in the series included interviews with Congolese activists Joseph Mbangu and Misengabo Kapuadi as well as several scholars and knowledgeable observers of the DRC.
