Video: Meet the First American to Explore Africa

Today we get a little history lesson courtesy of National Geographic. This video takes us to the furthest reaches of the African continent along with American explorer William Stamps, who traveled deep into the heart of the Congo back in 1889. He spent eight years there, making first contact with three different tribes and bringing back knowledge of the place, which up until then had remained mostly a blank spot on the map. Truly an interesting character. Enjoy.
