Last year, our producer, Darah Ghanem, stumbled upon an obscure blog on a nearly forgotten corner of the internet. On it were hundreds of historic photographs of a Christian missionary school in Khartoum called Unity High School.
But as she looked closer, she started to see something else: The blog’s writers were trying to tell the world about an alleged corruption scandal that they thought had taken place at the school nearly a decade ago. On this episode of “Kerning Cultures,” a story of loose ends, conflicting sources and half-truths — part 1 of 2.
This episode was produced by Darah Ghanem and Alex Atack, with editorial support from Dana Ballout and Hebah Fisher; fact-checking by Zeina Dowidar; sound design by Alex Atack; and mixing by Mohamed Khreizat. “Kerning Cultures” is a Kerning Cultures Network production.
