A group of activists and human rights lawyers in Kenya are challenging a dated criminal code in a case in which the outcome could have a huge impact across the whole of Africa. Gatura Gatura was watching Black-ish late one night when her neighbor came over to her apartment and asked to borrow a lighter. As she turned to find one, he asked if her girlfriend was home. Gatura, who was getting ready to begin her second year of law school, told him no; though they lived together, her girlfriend was a DJ and had a gig that night.
