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