Submit your questions for Dr. Dobrin in the live chat. You may be featured in the Q&A section.

"This Red Land" captures two worlds: Kenya and in the United States of America. Many issues affecting these two countries in the 1980's and 1990's are well brought out. They are issues that revolve around real events. There is Sungusungu in Kisii, Junius George's murder trial and death. The tribal killings in Kenya in 1992, witchcraft as presented in Kisii, the Tomkins park riot in which Kwamboka is involved in and many more events are real. The title spurs interest in political and social states both in Kenya and the United States of America in the 80's and 90's.
