Xavier's Dr. Kathleen Smythe Talks With Us About Her Book "Africa's Past, Our Future"

africas_past_cover.jpg

Dr. Kathleen Smythe joins us this afternoon - she teaches African history, global economic development, and sustainability at Xavier University. Her latest book, Africa's Past, Our Future, engages the history of the African continent through the perspective of global issues such as political instability, economic development, and climate change. The book promotes an appreciation for African social, economic, and political systems that have endured over the long-term and that offer different ways of thinking about our collective sustainable future.
