Monmouth University is pleased to announce The Provost's Film Series for 2013. Free of charge and open to the Monmouth University community and general public, this year's focus is on "African Journeys: Haunting Legacies, Fragile Futures." The films to be shown will capture the tribal and colonialist legacies and the responses of various African nations to them as well as the challenging economic, social, cultural, and ecological futures that these nations and communities face in the future. The series is organized by the Provost's Office and the Office for Global Initiatives.
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Thomas S. Pearson will host the first film of 2013, Raoul Peck's "Lumumba" on January 28 at 7:30 p.m. in Pollak Theatre. "Lumumba" portrays the true story of the rise to power and assassination of the formerly vilified and later redeemed leader of the independent Congo, Patrice Lumumba.
