Zoo apologizes for having exhibited a Congolese man 114 years ago

The Bronx Zoo apologized last month for an act from 114 years ago. The zoo acknowledged that past leaders participated in racism by putting an African man, Ota Benga, on display in the monkey house. ’He was captured. A white businessman brought Benga and other Africans to the US to be displayed at an exposition in St. Louis first before being caged. Benga took his own life in 1916.
