7:00 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.
Museum research associate and geologist Bob Raynolds spent months living and travelling in Africa in 1973. This year, he returned to Egypt, Kenya, and Ethiopia and was awestruck by the dramatic changes in infrastructure and lifestyles. Places that could scarcely be reached 40 years ago now have beautifully paved roads. Electricity abounds, and cell phones have propelled people to new lifestyles and connectivity. Through images and Bob’s unique gift for storytelling, travel to Africa and see how the northeastern part of the continent has been shaped by forces of modernization, and marvel at other features that remain unchanged, in particular the beauty, the exotic feel, and the great hospitality of the people. Student discount available when purchasing tickets at the door.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
