The Noon Symposium A Mirage of Democracy and an Illusion of a People: The Case of Cameroon, with Cameroon native Joseph Kwo, is set for Nov. 15 at South Arkansas Community College.
The guest speaker will discuss the political and socio-cultural landscape of his native country, specifically issues related to its 1960 independence from France and Great Britain.
Kwo has master’s degrees in diplomacy from Norwich University in Northfield, Vt., and French as a foreign language from the University of Buea (Cameroon). A multiple-award-winning educator, he recently relocated to south Arkansas from Houston. Held in Room 121 of the Center for Workforce Development at 3698 E. Main, the free event will begin with a light lunch at noon followed by the start of the program at 12:15 p.m.
