We Come as Friends

This film presents some current issues in Africa.  Questions of responsibility, support, influence, and many more come to mind.  Which will you follow for a term paper this year or next fall?  If you are inspired to learn more, the library on 4F has several books and journal articles from the speakers, directors, and facilitators.
