Indians in Uganda and East Africa: Retrospection and Realities

Indians in Uganda and East Africa: Retrospection and Realities

Indians in Uganda and East Africa: Retrospection and Realities INVITATION TO OUR 166th ICC ZOOM PUBLIC MEETING

East Africa in the 1960s was the setting where issues of political independence, the dismantling of an economic system based on racial segregation, the future of multiculturalism and the rights of racial minorities were all being played out against the backdrop of the "Winds of Change" which were blowing relentlessly across the African continent. The future of some 360,000 Asians hung in abeyance as the political drama unfolded- culminating in the Ugandan Asian Expulsion of 1972 when Idi Amin Dada expelled some 80,000 Asians in 90 days. The LIVE discussion will focus on a pre-recorded video interview entitled “East African Asians in the 1960s – End of Empire, Eve of Expulsion and the Time In-Between.”
