Don't Cell Your Soul: Learn the Facts About Coltan

When: Feb. 8-10, 12-2 p.m. 2010

Would you buy a new cellphone if it might kill a child you know? How about one you don't know? Come explore the Congo, coltan (a type of ore used in small electronic devices) and cellphones. You'll discover the fun and frustration of life in the Congo: from soukous, rumba and afropop, to malaria, child labour, sexual violence, conflict against civilians and lack of development.
