The Mau Mau Rebellion was a military conflict that took place from 1950 to 1962 in British Kenya. The Mau Mau failed to capture widespread public support partly due to the British policy of divide, conquer and rule.  The movement remained divided despite attempts to unify its many arms .  Today on the program author Laura Lee discusses one man's history as a Mau Mau General and how he broke through the rebel stereotypes throughout his life. She spend over 1,000 hours transcribing his words to write the book "The Boy is Gone, Conversations with a Mau Mau General." 

    

Later on Science Questions, we discuss the effects of ocean warming and pollution on seabirds.
