Where in the world is Eritrea, and why are some of its citizens landing in Montana?
At least 22 refugees fleeing the impoverished African nation on the Red Sea have made Missoula their home since November.
At 6 p.m. Wednesday, Soft Landing Missoula will sponsor a lecture called “Eritrea: The Country, Culture and Circumstance” at the University Center Theater on the University of Montana campus.
The free event is slated to wind up by 8 p.m., when Elton John’s “Wonderful Crazy Night” concert begins at the Adams Center.
The program features two speakers, one a UM Mansfield Fellow in International Affairs and the other a visiting adjunct from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia.
