Second of three talks by J. Clyde Mitchell
Professor of African Studies in the University College of Rhodesia and Nyasaland
The first shafts of the copper mines were sunk in 1927, when about 11,000 Africans were employed. In two years their number had doubled, and today it is estimated that more than 200,000 Africans are living in the Copperbelt towns. Professor Mitchell analyses the nature of these new urban African communities, which are highly significant in the development of Central Africa and for the study of African problems elsewhere.
