Exploring Africa TodayExploring Africa Today

Cameroon is split by an intense conflict between the Anglophone and Francophone parts of the country. Arkady Silverman has followed the conflict and will provide background and up-to-date information, as the basis for a broader discussion of the colonial heritage in Africa.

The Africa Group discussions will encompass the entire continent and its 54 countries. Presentations and conversations will include its history, economics, politics, security, health, culture and current events. Members of the group need not have deep knowledge or experience, only a significant curiosity.
