Introduction - Welcome to Africa!

Get ready for an adventure! Over the next couple of days, we are going to embark on a virtual trip to Africa. Our goal is to immerse ourselves as much as possible into the world of the Igbo, a people from the West African country of  Nigeria. The Igbo are the focus of a novel called Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe, which we will be reading and studying over the next couple of weeks. Your understanding of the novel will be greatly enhanced by a familiarity with the geography, history, culture, and customs of the Igbo and Nigeria, which brings us to our current task.
