The Frostburg State University Philosophical Forum and the African American Studies Lecture Series will present "Mora Mora: The Vanishing Environment of Madagascar," a presentation by Dr. Philip Allen, Wednesday, May 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cordts Physical Education Center's Leake Room. The event is free and open to the public.
Allen's presentation will lead the audience to the exploration of Madagascar's landscape and culture and will address the perils of the Malagasy patrimony. He will also discuss the question of poverty in Madagascar as "a conspiracy of circumstances" and will consider the issue of global solutions for Madagascar's local problems, which he is inclined to picture as "the combat of the rock and the egg." The presentation will be followed by an open discussion.
