Description
 
A strong indictment of Belgium’s brutal colonization of the Congo told through
the story of the kidnapping of Ota Benga. His family was killed, he was taken as
a slave, sent to the U.S. and then forced lived in the Bronx Zoo's monkey house
as an exhibit. The Congo was the personal property of Belgium's King Leopold II.
Under the administration of Leopold’s overseers, the Congo descended into

nightmare of whippings, amputations, forced labor and mass killings.
