  • David Livingstone

There was a time when every school kid new the phrase, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume," which is attributed to journalist Henry Morgan Stanley in 1871 after finding "missing" Scottish explorer and missionary David Livingstone deep in the wilds of Africa. The 50-minute documentary Great Adventurers: David Livingstone examines the singular life of a complex man — Livingstone was a passionate anti-slavery crusader and an early scientific investigator. The film screens as part of the Friday Nights at NOMA series tonight, April 3 at 7:00 p.m. It will be preceded by art activities beginning at 5:00 p.m. and a performance by musician Andrew Duhon at 5:30 p.m. More info here.
