Africa Projects 2014
Pick a country in sub-Sahara Africa and begin to do research on its history and present challenges
Here is what I have tentatively planned:  oral presentation with
accompanying visuals to be completed by May, 2014.  Perhaps
at least one slide to accompany each topic:
1.  Introduction (geography/climate/demography/map/flag)
2.  Colonial experience (who ruled?)
3.  Independence experience (peaceful? violent? Leadership?)
4.  Cold War experience (if relevant)
5.  Present leader/leadership configuration/reference corruption?
6.  Greatest 21st century challenges

The project will take the form of a google presentation*/ppt presentation (your choice)
Minimum of 8 slides (2 of which will be map, flag)  Please minimum bullet points.
*If you choose google presentation option, “share” with me.

I will upload on to the African Studies Website
Presentations = May, 2014
