Like Palestine, the Democratic Republic of Congo needs our help. Due to civil war and the brutal mining of cobalt, which is used to power our electronic devices, Congolese people are dying daily.

This month, I'm offering several titles, ranging from history, memoir, graphic novel, and social science, to expand our understanding of the issues plaguing the Congo. 

50% of all profits will be donated to Friends of the Congo, a DC-based activism organization that works in partnership with Congolese communities to bring about peaceful and lasting change in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), formerly Zaire.

You can purchase the bundle and save 15% plus free shipping or purchase titles separately.
