What YOU should be doing about Joseph Kony.
If you’re looking to learn more about Joseph Kony and the LRA, and develop an informed opinion, I cannot imagine a better guide than React and Respond: The Phenomenon of Kony 2012, released last week by the African Studies Association. It’ll only take you ten minutes to read and you’ll probably learn more than you did in Kony 2012 Part I and II combined. You owe it to yourself to read this guide.
If you read nothing else, read section I (“A Brief Guide to the LRA & Joseph Kony”) and section V (“What Can We Do about Uganda and the LRA?”). There’s also a section for teachers and students containing questions to ask and consider regarding the film, and a section of additional resources for further reading. Please read this.
Hat tip to Amber Ha at the Un-Cover The Night project, which seeks to inform Cover The Night participants on April 20th about the complexities of these issues.
