On Wednesday, April 2nd, at 7:30 p.m., at Coby’s restaurant in Cobleskill, join visiting guest lecturer and Fulbright Scholar Ikram Mechlaoui for a fascinated look at the history and culture of Tunisia. Long considered a bridge between Africa and Europe, Tunisia occupies a unique place in history. Home to the ancient city of Carthage, Tunisia boasts a 3,000 year history rich with influences from the Phoenicians, Romans, Ottoman Turks, Arabs and French. Enjoy a rare opportunity to get a native’s unique perspective on this most fascinating of African nations.
