This meetup is for individuals who have a strong interest and desire to learn about the continent of Africa in general.
For most Americans and people of different ethnic & cultural backgrounds, the mention of Africa may suddenly arouse an image of remote tribesmen, war torn countries, impenetrable jungles and lack of pretty much everything! Individuals attending this meetup will have the opportunity to learn and understand these myths while obtaining valuable information which could help de-mystify these popular misconceptions and stereotypes.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn French as an option. Currently out of the 29 countries around the world where french is spoken as an official language, 21 of those countries are located in the continent of Africa.
