Apocalypse Africa: Made in America

Secret recordings. Once classified films. Hidden documents. From inside the archives of the US government comes a story of racism and manipulation that reveals how the actions of a nation ultimately brought about the collapse of a continent: Africa.  

Over the course of just the last 50 years, approximately 20 million Africans have lost their lives in numerous civil wars. Multi-Emmy award-winning filmmaker Del Walters shows how those wars are directly linked to corruption that reaches the highest levels of American politics.

~Jack Balkin, Yale law professor
