"Cover the Night", A Qualified Success
Friday, April 27, 2012
Last Friday, the group Invisible Children tried to capitalize on the astounding success of their Kony 2012 video by organizing a worldwide demonstration called "Cover the Night." According to reports, the protest fizzled. Critics said this is symptomatic of the difficulty of translating online advocacy into real-world action, but Africa researcher Asch Harwood says that he still considers the film a qualified success.
