Presbyterian Missions in the Congo
Expeditions and explorations in the 19th century brought the land of the Congo, Luba and Kuba kingdoms to the attention of the Belgian King Leopold. The Belgian colonial power gave the Roman Catholic church access to the country for the civilization of its people. Presbyterian missionaries were in 1891 among the first Protestants in Congo and have been the pioneers for the evangelization of the Kasai peoples.
Early Presbyterian Mission
Click here for a larger picture with text The first Presbyterian missionaries are remembered for their advocacy for the Congolese people as they publicly spoke out against the excesses of the rubber trade by the Belgian King Leopold I. Through their protests hundreds of villagers were freed, after having been captured by local chiefs for the Arab slave trade.
Click here for a larger picture with text The early strategy of the APCM was to establish large central stations with ten to thirty missionaries concentrating on evangelistic work; translation and literature; medical work; education; and in some cases, agriculture. In the 1920's, over half of these missionaries were African-Americans.

The country's national name is : Republique Populaire du Congo. This nation of Central Africa is bounded on the north by the Central African Republic and Sudan; on the east by Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and Lake Tanganyika ; on the south by Zambia; on the southwest by Angola; and on the west by Angola and the Republic of the Congo. The extreme western portion of the country is a narrow wedge terminating in a 25-mile strip along the Atlantic Ocean. The greatest width of the country is about 1200 miles; its greatest length from north to south is about 1250 miles. Its total area is 905,365 square miles. The capital and largest city of the DRC is Kinshasa, formerly called LŽopoldville. Among other major cities are Lubumbashi, formerly Elisabethville; and Kisangani, formerly Stanleyville. Smaller cities include Bukavu, formerly Costermansville; Matadi, the principal port; Mbandaka, formerly Coquilhatville; and Boma, formerly the capital of both the Congo Free State and the Belgian Congo and now a commercial center.
Major Cities:
  • Brazzaville

Congo straddles the equator with it's only outlet to the South Atlantic Ocean is a very narrow strip of land that controls the lower Congo river. The nation is covered in dense tropical rainforests in the central river basin and the eastern highlands.

Peoples of the Lower Kasai and Its Tributaries
This heterogeneous group of peoples distributed north and south of the lower Kasai River, its tributaries, and the lower Congo River as far as Kinshasa all speak Bantu languages more closely related to each other than to those of adjacent peoples. Many of these groups, particularly those at the periphery, have been influenced by adjacent peoplesthe Mongo in the north and peoples of the Kwango River in the southwest. Vansina has distinguished several clusters, each including the group giving its name to the cluster and others. The Tio cluster includes the core peoples of the Tio Kingdom and several others, some of them never incorporated into the kingdom. The Boma-Sakata cluster includes the Nku and several smaller groups. The Yans-Mbun cluster includes a number of smaller entities. The Kuba cluster includes the Leele, the Njembe, and a number of groups governed by a ruling group called the Bushong, together called Kuba. The Tio Kingdom was established along both sides of the Congo River north and south of Stanley Pool (now Pool de Malebo) at least as early as the fifteenth century and influenced the development of smaller kingdoms and chiefdoms along the lower Kasai thereafter. At the eastern end of the region, the kingdom of the Kuba, already in existence but not well developed, was reorganized in the midseventeenth century and exercised considerable influence in the region west of the Tshiluba-speaking peoples. Between the Tio in the west and the Kuba, most of the peoples in the region were organized into small kingdoms or chieftainships that extended beyond the level of the village or local community. The only important exception was the Leele. There were Leele chiefdoms, but the chiefs had no real significance, and the villages were essentially autonomous and often in conflict.

Vice Chancellor, University of Cape Coast Course Description:
An opportunity to explore the great African continent. The concept "African culture" will be defined and delineated. The major characteristics of African culture will be outlined, including: kinship, family and marriage, indigenous political systems and traditional economic patterns and belief systems. Students will learn how agents of social change such as industrialization, colonial rule, education, urbanization and Christianity have shaped African culture. The status of women in contemporary African society will also be explored. I. INTRODUCTION 1. The myth of the "homogenous" African culture; the reality of cultural pluralism in Africa.
2. Africa in Historical perspective (a) Misconceptions and distortions about African past.
(b) Africa in antiquity - ancient cultures and civilizations.
Note: Africa has been a dynamic partner in civilization. The earliest civilization (OLDUVAI CIVILIZATION) more than 2000 years ago, has been found near Tanganyika. Africa is the cradle of humanity. (i)

Narrated by Abilio Fernandez A Patricio Guzmán Film Produced by Chris Marker in association with El Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industria Cinematográfica Videocassete (96 min) Publisher: New York, NY : First Run/Icarus Films, [199-?] Location: Instructional Media Services Call Number: VT2467 VHS
The first film in a two-part documentary on the fate of Allende's Popular Unity government filmed throughout Chile from February to September 1973. Part one examines the escalation of rightist opposition following the left's victory in Congressional elections held in March, 1973. Finding that parliamentary democracy would not stop Allende's socialist policies, the right-wing shifted its tactics from the polls to the streets. The film follows months of activity as a variety of increasingly violent tactics are used by the right to weaken the government and provoke a crisis. Notes: Videocassette release of a motion picture originally produced in 1975. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Back to index Hobgoblin No. 3 Winter 2000/2001 The Rape of the Congo King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror and Heroism in Colonial Africa Author: Adam Hochschild Houghton Mifflin 1998; Macmillan 1999. Reviewed by Richard Abernethy. Before Hitler and Stalin, there was Leopold II, King of the Belgians. In his own country he was a constitutional monarch with limited powers. In Africa, without ever going there, he made himself both ruler and owner of a vast empire, the so-called Congo Free State. Leopold's exploitation of the Congo was so inhuman and devastating that the country was depopulated. Measuring the scale of the catastrophe is difficult, but one demographic study estimated that the population was halved, from twenty million to ten million, between 1880 and 1920. Adam Hochschild's King Leopold's Ghost is a compelling account of the fate of the Congo, written in the conviction that this, one of the greatest inhumanities of the modern world, needs to be remembered and understood. The main narrative concerns the period from the first European exploration of the upper Congo by Henry Morton Stanley in 1874-77 through to the death of Leopold in 1909. This is set in context by brief accounts of earlier and later events: the arrival of the Portuguese five centuries ago and the Atlantic slave trade; and the CIA sponsored murder of the Congo's independence leader, Patrice Lumumba, in 1961, and the subsequent dictatorship of his assassin, Mobutu.

A 6 page analysis of this book by Ana Celia Zentella, which details the author's 14-year study of five bilingual girls growing up on a single block of New York's "El Barrio," the nation's longest settled Puerto Rican neighborhood. The writer gives an overall view of the book and concludes that it should be read by everyone who might vote on issues concerning bilingualism in the public school system. Zentella dispels many misconceptions that surround this issue and argues persuasively in favor of bilingualism. The writer also argues that Zentella's book can be used to gain added knowledge in how language is acquired and used. Refers to the source. No additional sources cited.

Crowning Achievements explores the cultural history and lore of African headwear-from spectacular hats for special events to informal everyday examples-and the vital role such headwear plays in reinforcing societal norms, announcing important rituals, recalling historical events, and celebrating an individual's achievements. The human head is traditionally held by African cultures to be the seat of individual power, spirit, and intelligence. Through this examination of African headwear, notions of status and accumulation in the Lega and Kuba societies are compared, and connections between Africa and the Americas are explored. The history, manufacturing technology, symbolism, and provenance of twelve hats are examined in depth. 9.75" x 10.25", 192 pages, 143 color illustrations, 82 black-and-white illustrations, bibliography (1995).

(pp 9-19; references given by Spring are fully cited in the bibliography This book is primarily intended as a celebration of African artistry and ingenuity. It also attempts to show the way in which arms and armour are incorporated into the complex material systems which express the structure of non-industrialised societies. The book takes as its subject a particular category of artefact which may not conform to Western preconceptions of what constitutes African art, but this should not be allowed to detract from our appreciation. Furthermore, the creativity which has gone into the production of African arms and armour must not be obscured by the fact that these artefacts are often used in a context which attests to man's most negative and destructive cultural proclivity. At the risk of playing devil's advocate, I believe that to underrate the significance of these artefacts within the societies which produced them would be to overlook a whole range of human endeavour and activity. Weapons and Society
It is difficult both to detect and to analyse the concept of aesthetic appreciation in societies which do not appear to have a perception of 'art' as we in the West understand it. However, there is some evidence to suggest that there is a considerable difference between the type of object which might be considered of aesthetic significance in an African as opposed to a Western context. As Vaughan (1973) has pointed out, the Marghi of Northern Nigeria 'do not consider rock paintings or calabash decorations fitting topics for artistic activity, while they do view weapons as products which are worthy of an aesthetic appreciation'.

The recontextualization of culture in UK museums
Anthropology Today Vol. 8, No. 5, October 1992, pp. 11-16
(c) Royal Anthropological Institute
Until recently, local museums have done little to dispel this chilling, but to some intensely compelling and romantic image of arrested time and decay. There are few other areas where the effects of lethargy and neglect have been more acutely felt than in ethnography displays, where under-capitalization, lack of specialized expertise and problems of contextualization have threatened the preservation of materials and compromised the commitment of serious curators to provide appropriate settings for their collections. The Marischal Museum, Aberdeen, combines excellent visual presentation with a challenging comparative approach to anthropological themes.
Many of the country's estimated 378 ethnographic collection remain in storage.
