"Africa: Facts and Myths" – Nov. 5

October 25th, 2010

The African Studies Association cordially invites the university community and the general public to its upcoming forum, “Africa: Facts and Myths” on Friday Nov. 5, from 6-8 p.m. at the Schaeffer Hall Auditorium Room 140.

The forum involves a presentation of statements which the audience will be asked to identify as fact or myth, and then one of our representatives or our special guest, Prof. Lyombe Eko will give an explanation of the right answer. The audience will also have a chance to ask questions.

As an organization and a people, we hope that holding this forum and many more will encourage open and honest discussions about Africa around campus and in the community.
