Description

This film traces the history of Kenya's opposition to white rule, from the arrival of settlers in the 19th century to the Mau Mau revolution in 1952. We see the growing frustration of the Kenyans and their leader Jomo Kenyatta. Eyewitnesses speak of the old colonial laws restricting black movement and access to land. They describe the evolution of the Mau Mau and its characterisation in the European press.
