What are the Congolese Ghosts of the Belgian King Leopold II?

What are the Congolese Ghosts of the Belgian King Leopold II? Who discovered them? How did the world hear about them? What happened next – to the king and to the ‘ghosts’? What are repercussions? Have such and similar practices ended? Read the relevant sections of your textbook – start by defining imperialism, colonialism, and the events that led to the ‘Congo Conference’, with repercussions to Africa, and the Congo specifically (this should be about a paragraph or two; then move along to answer the question above). Assignment should be about 2 pages long, with at least 4 historical dates. View the YouTube video (23:07) by Margi Films – King Leopold’s Ghost: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsSzy4SPu_E Read and chose a section to cite from the book by Adam Hochschild: King Leopolod’s Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa, fond as a pdf attachment: http://ieas.unideb.hu/admin/file_6617.pdf Cite 2 sources: the video, and our textbook. These 2 sources are the above links, and relevant sections from the chapter in your textbook. Make sure that you cite and use less than 20% of total words count of your paper, cite properly your sources (MLA style – see instructions under “Originality and Format”). Have those two in text citations in the assignment itself. and list them in the “works cited” section at the end of your assignment (again, see the links on MLA citation). For questions on originality see Policy on Academic Integrity. Violations of the policy (e.g. if more than 20% of paper consists of non-original material, whether quoted or not cited, will result in grade nil – ‘zero’)
