Profs and Pints presents: Outsiders Wreak Havoc in Africa, with Elizabeth Schmidt, professor of history at Loyola University Maryland and author of Foreign Intervention in Africa after the Cold War.

To outsiders, the word Africa often conjures up images of a continent in crisis, a place riddled with war and corruption and imploding from disease and starvation. Many regularly place the blame for Africans' plight on Africans themselves.

Elizabeth Schmidt, a historian and author of several books on Africa, will challenge such myths in a talk that examines the historical roots of Africa's contemporary problems.
