Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of Liberia's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust.

Dreaming of Africa
 
03:45
In 1893, English woman Mary Kingsley set off on her first exploration of West Africa. Victorian ladies were not expected to travel abroad alone, especially to dangerous, unknown regions! Mary recorded her discoveries in the book 'Travels in West Africa'. She was the first person to climb Mount Cameroon, she studied Jungle tribes who were previously reported to be cannibals and discovered new species of river fish for the British Museum. Her book is a wonderful portrait of both her and the parts of Africa that she grew to love.

The Royal African Society
 
03:09
The journalist tells the story of the world's leading organization for African affairs. Question: What is the history and mission of the Royal African Society?   Richard Dowden: The Royal African Society; it's just over a 100 hundred years old. And it was founded to take Africa seriously. It was founded by a mixture of academics and business people and it became an academic institution. And its journal, "African Affairs," is the world's leading peer-reviewed academic journal on Africa. I came in about 5 years ago and gave it some other programs. A political one, we worked in Westminster. And [my toll] with government, trying to get them to take Africa seriously and understand it. We worked closely with the African Diaspora in Britain, and with several other partners. And we, now, publish books which are not academic books, write reports, hold meetings. We run the London African Film Festival last year. We're doing some big cultural events for Africa at the end of this year. So its programs have really diversified but its core messages to get a better understanding of Africa and promote that better understanding.   Question: How do you negotiate Royal African Society's colonial overtones?   Richard Dowden: We did think about it and we couldn't come up with another one. It's very strange. In Africa, in West Africa, where there're a lot of kingdoms, they love it. The royal Africans have full of respect. South Africa, the opposite. They see it as; you must be trying to recolonize Africa. East Africa, it's kind of mixed. And in the end, we thought long and hard about it and we decided to keep the title because it does have a reputation. It had its very distinguished Africanist academic background. And it's a punch line, if you like, promoting Africa. A better understanding of Africa makes it clear that we're not about trying to colonize it. The person it was founded by, in memory of, was this extraordinary woman, Mary Kingsley. She was an anthropologist but she did some amazing travels in West Africa. She was actually very anti-colonialist in many ways. But she said, "If you're going to do it, do it properly." And her agenda was today's agenda, schools, education, health, you know, development, and treating Africans as equals, as partners, not as a race of people to be civilized, which was the current thinking at the time. So she was already quite a farsighted person.   Recorded: March 16, 2009   Question: What is the history and mission of the Royal African Society?   Richard Dowden: The Royal African Society; it's just over a 100 hundred years old.

Discover Mauritius An Island Of Emotion - Unravel Travel TV
 
07:03
#Mauritius in the #IndianOcean is known for its sparkling crystal and turquoise waters. The contrast of colours, cultures and tastes makes the island a location for an unforgettable holiday. Mauritius offers the opportunity to unparalleled luxury, a level of refinement that is ahead of many other other tropical holiday destinations. Mauritius was named after Dutch Prince Maurice Van Nassau. Mauritius' white beaches are protected by a coral reef barrier that encircles almost all of the coastline, with the exception of the southern end, where it falls away and where wilder waters and dramatic cliffs can be observed. From the northern plains, the land rises to a central plateau dotted by lakes and extinct volcanic craters. A few uninhabited islets area are scattered around the main island. Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius, was founded by the French governor and colonist Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais in 1735. Situated on the north-west coast, Port Louis is the business and administrative capital of Mauritius. Packed with office-workers during the day, it quickly quietens down after office-hours allowing visitors to enjoy a night out along the famous Caudan Waterfront. The south reveals a dramatically different landscape from the rest of the island: one typified by high cliffs in places that are battered by waves. These are created where the protective barrier of coral reef that surrounds Mauritius falls away on the seabed, so leaving the coastline exposed to the punishing Indian Ocean. But the south is not singularly about cliffs and rough waters. Further round the coastline, heading westwards, is an array of beautiful beaches and top-rated hotels and resorts, in up-and-coming areas such as Bel Ombre. The eastern coastline of Mauritius is comprised of exquisite coves and emerald lagoons, permanently enhanced by a cool sea breeze: life goes by at a slow pace in the east whether you're a member of the fishing community or a holidaymaker. Situated between the mountains and the sea, the east is characterised by charming little villages with poetic names like Petite Julie, Mare d'Australia and Queen Victoria. It also plays home to some of the country's best beaches, including Belle Mare, where you will want to spend hours basking in the sun, glorying in the sight of the long stretch of white sand. To the west and south-west of Mauritius off Tamarin Bay or Flic en Flac, heading in the direction of Île aux Benitiers, you can see the dolphins that come to these waters to rest and breed. The Morne Mountain, with its historical links to slavery, can also be found in this region --as well as some fine hotels are known for their wide choice of watersports. Slightly inland, in the hills around Chamarel, is the rum distillery that bears the name of the village. Here, you can learn about rum production and taste some of the delightful produce. Inland & Central Plateau of Mauritius is the 'highlands' where you will discover the island's four other major towns. In Quatre Bornes, head for the local market if you want to do some bargain-hunting. In Curepipe, where it is generally cooler than elsewhere on the island, try visiting the botanical gardens. In the early evening, the gardens of the Plaza -- the municipal theatre of the town of Rose Hill -- fill up with families who come to relax and enjoy an ice--cream. This is a heart-warming sight definitely worth beholding. Vacoas, meanwhile, is most renowned for its Gymkhana Golf Club the oldest in the southern hemisphere.

RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria
 
03:48
http://www.re-emergingfilm.com RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria A Documentary Film by Jeff L. Lieberman RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria" is a journey into the heart of Igboland and into the lives and culture of the Igbo people. The film introduces the world to the many synagogues that dot the land, and a handful of passionate, committed, and diverse characters -- each striving to fulfill their historical legacy with few resources and unbeknownst to most of the world. Individual stories are woven together with key facets of history, tracing the Igbo from Biblical times up to the brutal 1960s Biafran War, which killed over 1 million Igbo. A wide range of American academics help detail this history, including shedding new light on the Igbo origins of thousands of slaves captured during the Atlantic Slave Trade and brought to American shores. The film delves into this history and travels to the southeast coast of Georgia, where locals still speak of the Igbo spirit at a riverbed called Ibo Landing. The individuals featured in the film also demonstrate that incredible Igbo spirit. Shmuel is a young man whose story exemplifies the journey toward finding Judaism. Today, he is a leader in his community who teaches and chants Torah, and has big dreams of one day becoming a rabbi. But like almost every Igbo, he grew up surrounded by Christian colonialism, and the road to discovery has been fraught with misunderstanding, wrong turns into Messianic worship, family exile, violent prejudice from both Muslim and Christian neighbors, scorn from Jews he has contacted in the Western world, and frustration of a lack of funds to further educate himself through Internet access. Yet, it's also been an amazing discovery of community, and furthered with the love of an American rabbi who has been working with both him and the larger community to see their dreams become a reality. This is the first independent film for New York-Based Director, Jeff L. Lieberman. Lieberman is a freelance Journalist and Producer in New York, whose work has been seen on CBS, HBO, CNN, FOX, Starz Encore, Fox Movie Channel, The Discovery Channel, E! Entertainment, and on the websites of Yahoo!, The New York Post, CBS Moneywatch, and The Huffington Post. Brand new musical score of West-African and Jewish music composed by Brooklyn-based Composer, Jeremiah Lockwood of Sway Machinery.

Columbus, de Gama, and Zheng He! 15th Century Mariners. Crash Course: World History #21
 
10:38
In which John Green teaches you about the beginning of the so-called Age of Discovery. You've probably heard of Christopher Columbus, who "discovered" America in 1492, but what about Vasco da Gama? How about Zheng He? Columbus gets a bad rap from many modern historians, but it turns out he was pretty important as far as the history of the world goes. That said, he wasn't the only pioneer plying the seas in the 1400s. In Portugal, Vasco da Gama was busy integrating Europe into the Indian Ocean Trade by sailing around Africa. Chinese admiral Zheng He was also traveling far and wide in the largest wooden ships ever built. Columbus, whether portrayed as hero or villain, is usually credited as the great sailor of the 15th century, but he definitely wasn't the only contender. What better way to settle this question than with a knock-down, drag-out, no holds barred, old-fashioned battle royal? We were going to make it a cage match, but welding is EXPENSIVE.
