MARLBORO, VT - On February 16, Marlboro College will be hosting a slide lecture by Putney, Vermont, resident Keith Snow who will talk about his experiences as a journalist, photographer, and activist in Africa.
According to Snow, his lecture features an examination that compares and contrasts media reportage on Africa (i.e., propaganda, censorship, and bias that perpetuate racist discourse and political stagnation) and political, social, and economic realities in Africa (i.e., dictatorship, human rights, female sexual autonomy, famine, population, economics, and war).
Snow also addresses U.S. military, intelligence, and CIA activities in Africa, mind control, and the social impact of Western newspaper reportage on its readers. His presentation is complemented by a juxtaposition of images from Africa and the U.S. mass media, simultaneously revealing the horrors and joys of Africa.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on campus. For the exact building location, please contact Student Activities Director Carrie Weikel at (802) 258-9248 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
