The Milwaukee Courier spoke with Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies Kalala Ngalamulume for an article on myths associated with the Ebola virus.

Ngalamulume specializes in the history of health and disease in West Africa.  His upcoming book, entitled Colonial Pathologies, Environment, and Western Medicine in Saint-Louis-du-Senegal, 1867-1920 (Peter Lang Publishing, Inc.), explores how the French colonial and medical authorities and the urban residents responded to the emergence and re-emergence of deadly epidemic diseases and environmental contamination in the capital of Senegal and French West Africa
