In 1964 a missionary family from Belfast found themselves caught up in a bloody rebellion in the Central African Republic of Congo. Held under house arrest for four months, the McAllisters narrowly escaped death, but 19 of their friends and colleagues were not so fortunate. Now, 50 years on, 89-year-old Bob McAllister is making the 6,000-mile journey back into the heart of the Congo to remember those who died. This film follows Bob on that journey, and tells the story of how the McAllisters came to be in Congo, their arrest and sensational rescue.
Central Africa in the Caribbean: Transcending Space, Transforming Culture

Central Africa in the Caribbean: Transcending Space, Transforming Culture by Maureen Warner-Lewis
English | 2000 | ISBN: 9766401187 | 391 Pages | PDF | 21 MB

A sweeping, multidisciplinary study that analyzes and identifies some of the main lineaments of the Central African cultural legacy in the Caribbean. This long-awaited study is based on more than three decades of research and analysis. Scholars will be fascinated with the transatlantic comparative data. The author identifies Central African cultural forms in those areas settled in Africa by the Koongo, Mbundu, and Ovimbunde. (The modern-day locations of these three ethnic groups are present-day Congo, Zaire and Angola.) The book illuminates Caribbean thought and practice by comparison with Central African worldview and custom. The work is based on extensive primary and secondary sources, oral interviews, letters and diaries, folktales, proverbs and songs.

Label: Nat Geo Music | Released: June 1, 2010

The future of funk is being written right now by a pair of Parisian groove theorists named Bibi Tanga and Professeur Inlassable. Singer, bassist and bandleader Bibi Tanga bridges the divide between the arty South Bank of the Seine and the gritty suburbs, where he grew up as an immigrant from the Central African Republic. Bibi's music is marked by slinky, sinuous basslines and a wicked falsetto that conjures up Prince and Curtis Mayfield, while producer Professeur Inlassable ("The Tireless Professor") digs deep beneath the cobblestones of Paris to unearth the sound and spirit of another era. Together with Bibi's band The Selenites, the duo forges a stunningly original new sound and creates a space where Afro-futurism meets steampunk, Fela Kuti jams with Sidney Bechet and Marcel Duchamp gets down to Chic.

Being Real: The Student-Teacher Relationship and African-American Male Delinquency (Criminal Justice) by Camille Gibson
English | June 2002 | ISBN: 1931202311 | 342 Pages| PDF | 1 MB

Gibson looks at how student-teacher relationships affect African American males. She studied students in two Bronx, New York, schools. African-American males may start optimistic, but they often come to perceive school as a poor option for achieving the "American dream." Instead, they may turn to crime, most often drug dealing and violence.
