‘Who was Henry Muoria?’ with Peter Muoria

Discussion of the life of Henry Muoria, whose work was influential in the Kenyan anti-colonial struggle of the late 1940s and 50s and stands in contrast to the conservatism of Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya's first President.

Henry Muoria spent much of his later life living in Islington, as his life became increasingly under threat in the ferment of the oppressive regime at home. Henry’s son, Peter Muoria, co-author of book ‘Writing for Kenya: the Life and Works of Henry Muoria’, will share his insights into the family and political life and legacy of his courageous father.

A discussion of the life of Henry Muoria, Kenyan political thinker, writer, and activist, who published pamphlets and newspapers that were highly influential in the anti-colonial struggle of Kenya in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and whose radicalism stood in contrast to the relative conservatism of Jomo Kenyatta, who became Kenya's first President.
