The Dark Tales of Congo DR is a 12 chapter text museum that retells a sequence of events in the country the Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC] between the 17th to the 21st century, through the eyes of a frustrated and somewhat naive young Congolese/Angolan woman in the diaspora. 

 

Shirley Sozinha begins the book with an insight into the historic Kingdom of Kongo, a notion that she built her own organisation around [@kingdomofkongo]. Although some may wonder why, as the historic kingdom does not represent the whole country and all original native kingdoms; this is traced back to the origins of the author. The first transatlanctic slave trade to affect the region is also explored in the second chapter, you can read about the impact of Portguese merchants in the kingdom.

 

The book also delves deep into King Leopold II and the Congo Free State, the author discusses important events such as the #BerlinConference, the Katangese Succession, Independence Day, the First civil war in Congo and much more.
