African Studies Association event honoring Joel Barkan this weekend

The African Studies Association annual meeting is beginning in Indianapolis and an eminent panel Saturday will recognize Joel’s impact. Being a “Kenya junkie” is not the same for me without him and I wish I could be at the ASA for the appreciation of his legacy.

American lawyer. Took leave from corporate career to “assist” democracy in East Africa. After stolen '07 election in Kenya and violent aftermath I have tried to bring out truth of events for those who care in hope we can learn and do better.
