In the wake of the #RhodesMustFall campaign, I chat to Duncan Clarke, author of Rhodes Ghost and try to get to the bottom of Cecil Rhodes – man, myth, legend or monster?
This podcast began as an audio version of my book, Mud Between Your Toes – a memoir about my life – a gay, white boy growing up during the 1970s Rhodesian Bush War. It has now evolved into a series of conversations with characters and personalities with stories to tell – occasionally on an African theme.
Season 03 - Episode 14 of MUD BETWEEN YOUR TOES CONVERSATIONS WITH PETE WOOD. Cecil Rhodes is never far from the news these days. For all the wrong reasons it seems.
His Oxford scholarship legacy, which has been enjoyed by 1000s of students globally, is now controversial and the #RhodesMustFall campaign want his statue torn down at oriel college, Oxford.
It seemed appropriate to dig deeper and invite Duncan Clarke, author of Rhodes Ghost, to talk to me about the man, the myth, the legend and to try and disseminate the truth from the fiction.
