Summary
The Cape of Good Hope-and a stop in thriving Cape Town, South Africa-begins this eye-opening fact-finding voyage up the western edge of the continent. Presenting information and perspectives on a wide range of cultural and economic landscapes, the program explores the history and aftermath of civil war in Luanda, Angola; bustling street life, including an enterprising witch doctor, in Douala, Cameroon; voodoo fetish and secondhand car trafficking in Cotonou, Benin; the specter of the slave trade at Goree Island in Dakar, Senegal; and the split cultural identity of Tangiers, Morocco-a city as European as it is North African. Portions are in other languages with English subtitles
