Rethinking Equatorial Guinea on its 40th Anniversary of Independence
Equatorial Guinea, a former Spanish colony (1778-1968) and the only Spanish-speaking nation-state in Africa, recently marked the 40th anniversary of its independence. The conference, Between Three Continents—the fulcrum of an initiative designed to reshape the place of Africa in debates on the Spanish-speaking and Atlantic worlds—addressed historical and cultural connections between Equatorial Guinea, Spain, and the Americas.
York College Adjunct Professor (History) David Casavis presented a paper entitled “Teasing Out Psychopathic Behaviors of African Leaders: Francisco Macías” at Hofstra University's Cultural Center on April 2, 2009
