About Congo Week

Maurice Carney, Executive Director of Friends of the Congo invites us at Adelphi to participate in upcoming Global Congo Week activities. Congo Week and Congo in Harlem.

Perhaps you are already familiar with the importance of Congo and the powerful work done by Friends of the Congo through education and activism. If not, please consider taking time to learn about the particularities of history and the contemporary situation. With the centrality of Congolese minerals to all technology, there is continuing colonial ravages and unyielding resistance of the Congolese people. The Congo Week website has a vast array of resources including a full curriculum.
