Dr. Bernard Mambo was a guest lecturer on West African culture in Mr. Ross’ Modern World History classes. Dr. Mambo is from Cote d'Ivoire or the Ivory Coast. Students have been studying the Ancient civilizations of Mali, Ghana, and Songhai and the modern-day Ivory Coast is situated between these ancient African civilizations. Dr. Mambo pointed out where he is from and talked about West African Culture. He treated the students to music, dates, and a quick lesson on playing his Djembe drum. Some students enjoyed the sweet fruit, while others were not fans, yet all of them enjoyed hearing about our French teacher’s culture!
