Timbuktu exhibit illustrates life in West Africa | News
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A national traveling exhibit for children on West Africa has found a new home at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center in Little Rock.
The exhibition, "From Here to Timbuktu: A Journey Through West Africa," opens Saturday, March 24 with activities, crafts and African-inspired refreshments.
The exhibition emphasizes three geographic regions of West Africa - the coast, the Savanna grasslands, and the area bordering the Sahara Desert. That all leads to Timbuktu, an ancient center of learning.
The displays, which are geared toward children, feature hands-on activities that illustrate life in West Africa.
