with David Tannenbaum
The setting for Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, a jungle pulsing with the flow of Africa’s greatest river. Once the Kongo Kingdom, then the Belgian Congo, Zaire, and now The Democratic Republic of the Congo. This vast land of riches and diversity is better known for hardship: Colonization, dictatorship, war, AIDS, Ebola. Yet its people display such great resilience, creativity, and humor, such joie de vivre. And they make some of the best music and beer in Africa! Grab your lunch and get ready to explore the Congo's history and listen to a firsthand account of its situation today.
