The sins of the the fathers…

This is unbelievable!!  Real, live, African human beings will
be on

display like animals at the Ausberg Zoo in Germany!!  Please

take a moment to send a letter of protest.  Read the letter to learn

more and more information on sending a protest letter.

Below is a blurb from the letter which has circulated on the

H-Afro listserve of African American Studies scholars.

“It is with utmost indignation that the African German community

has taken notice of the plans to open an “African Village” within

the zoo of Augsburg, Germany. The opening of this exhibit is

scheduled for July 9 – July 12. 2005.”

The letter was written and generated by a professor and provost

at the University of Cologne (one of the most popular German

universities) and Toyin Falola, a professor of history at the

University of Texas at Austin. It is now posted online at the link

provided below.
