A cursed family

What shapes the history of a country and a family depends on who writes it. Jennifer Makumbi’s critically acclaimed debut novel, Kintu, follows a Ugandan family from 1750 to the present day. With its presentation of the east African nation over almost 300 years, Kintu has been hailed as the “great Ugandan novel” – without giving much space to Idi Amin and the British colonists.

Makumbi meets Africa expert and journalist Tomm Kristiansen for a conversation on Uganda, literature and who has power over history.

The conversation will be in English.
