Yesterday ‘A Brilliant Genocide’ was screened for the 5th time in just one month. The event was held in New York at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, hosted by Mr. Disu and Professor Tiffany Wheatland, including a post screening Q & A with Milton Allimadi.

Thank you to the American universities, colleges and film festivals who are getting behind our important documentary and larger justice campaign.

Would you like to host a screening for your school, workplace or community?

Get in touch and help end the silence around the untold genocide and crimes against humanity in Uganda.

Many of you have heard about #JosephKony and #LordResistanceArmy whose campaign of terror in Central Africa has caused much suffering.

But, that is just one side of a larger story of American taxpayer-facilitated crimes against humanity under Dictator Yoweri Museveni. The dictator continues to be the darling of the West and we must learn of our complicity in this human tragedy of the #Acholi peoples as Prof. Milton Allimadi explained. Prof. Allimadi is featured in this film and explains how the documentary came to be after one woman visited Uganda on the trail of Joseph Kony and found a bigger problem many of us helped to create. Thank you so much for this critical work of love and sacrifice Ebony Atlanta Butler!

Prof. Tiffany Wheatland and I chose to host a screening of A Brilliant Genocide as our first collaboration for the John Jay College of Criminal Justice community yesterday.
