Kojo speaks with "Speak No Evil" novelist and D.C. native Uzodinma Iweala about his second novel and how his local upbringing affects his storytelling.
Guest Host: Rebecca Roberts
It was one of the most notorious crimes in El Salvador’s brutal civil war. In November 1989, soldiers murdered six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her teenage daughter. Now, human rights lawyers are bringing charges against that country’s former president, filing a criminal complaint in a Spanish court. Kojo explores the significance of the case for international law and the local Salvadoran diaspora.
