Regent's Park College
Featuring artefacts, navigational equipment, maps, photographs, personal letters and diaries, Navigating the Congo is an exhibition which explores the history of Non Conformist involvement in the Congo River regions during the 19th and 20th century.
By looking at the collections held in The Angus Library and Archive, the exhibition seeks to bring to light some of the challenges faced in navigating this history and the relationships that developed between Baptist missionaries and the people of the Congo during the period of European colonialism.
Two talks will be held in conjunction with the exhibition:
Tuesday 22nd Sept – Bandi Mbubi will be speaking about his work with Congo Calling to demand the development of fair trade technology which uses conflict-free minerals.
Thursday 24th Sept – Dr Rob Burroughs, Leeds Beckett University, will be speaking on Protestant missionary travellers in the Congo Free State.
