In 2011, Edmonds Community College explores its connections to modern Africa by offering classes, art exhibits, and a community read with a theme of current issues in Africa.
Winter classes include an English composition class with the theme “East Africa in the Modern World” and “Africa in World Politics,” a Political Science class.
The Edmonds CC Community Read book is "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. The book tells Kamkwamba’s story of growing up in poverty in Malawi and how, at age 14, he built a windmill to generate electricity, a luxury enjoyed by just two percent of the population in his country. Kamkwamba visits campus April 11 to speak in the Black Box Theatre.
The college’s focus on art and ideas from nations including Cameroon, Malawi, Somalia, and Kenya stems from the personal connections of college students and employees.
