Africa Has Penguins?

Penguins.  Seals.  Not the first things to pop into your mind when you think of Africa.

But Cape Town, South Africa, has both. And what an important place in Black History Cape Town has!  After all, Archbishop Desmond Tutu was Archbishop of Cape Town and Nelson Mandela spent years in prison on Robben Island near Cape Town before he became the first black president of South Africa.

Come learn a bit more about Cape Town throughout February at the Chevy Chase Branch Library.  This little video preview of our display will give you some idea of why Cape Town is the most popular tourist destination in all of Africa.
