African Circle Museum of Pointe-Noire

The African Circle Museum of Pointe-Noire is located on the Lumumba roundabout, which marked the boundary beyond which Congolese natives who had acquired French nationality were denied access to the “Cercle Civil,” where the French elites would gather during the colonial era. The museum’s new home was once a Court of Justice before it was decommissioned. It was renovated and transformed by the Congolese government in collaboration with Eni Congo and under the auspices of Unesco.

We are committed to Africa

Unlike many global publications, for nearly a decade we have been committed to showing a complete picture of Africa – not just a single story.  Offended by one-sided coverage of wars, disasters and disease, the founders of Africa.com created a website that provides a balanced view of Africa – current events, business, arts & culture, travel, fashion, sports, information, development, and more.
