On the “anniversary” of the defacto coup that saw the end of Robert Mugabe's three decade rule, the Harvard Centre for African Studies hosts Zimbabwean writers who interrogate the history that culminates in one of the biggest political shakeups in generations through memoir, political analysis, reportage and fiction in order to reimagine it.
