Adwa Victory Day, BBC 'Witness,' And Fair Trade Ceramics
On today's show:
- The Battle of Adwa in 1896 was the bloodiest of all colonial battles in Africa. Worldview discusses the battle and the Adwa Victory Day holiday, which occurs every March 2, with Dr. Paulos Milkias, a professor at Concordia University in Montreal.
- BBC Witness: After the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal, several countries have joined the U.K. in accusing Russia of a politically-motivated attack against one of their own citizens. In 2006, another ex-Russian spy, Alexander Litvinenko, was fatally poisoned in London. BBC’s Rebecca Kesby shares how the scandal transpired last time.
- Global Activism: The Indian tradition of crafting handmade black clay pottery faces extinction. Manvee Vaid, co-founder of Deccan Footprints, joins Worldview to discuss her struggle beating back politics and progress to keep this rare craft alive.
