Congolese Independence Day of Atlanta
Democratic Republic of the Congo Independence Day Background
The Republic of Zaire is the previous name of the present Democratic Republic of the Congo or République démocratique du Congo (in French language). The country was also known in other names such as Belgian Congo, the Congo Free State, Congo-Kinshasa, and Congo-Léopoldville. It is a sovereign country situated in the central parts of Africa, which has a brief Atlantic shoreline spanning 37 km. In terms of area, Democratic Republic of the Congo is the third biggest nation in the continent following Sudan and Algeria. It is the 12th biggest country in the world.
In 1908, the Parliament of Belgium, in spite of unwillingness in the beginning, bent over to global demands (particularly that from Great Britain) and occupied the Congo Free State in the form of a Belgian settlement from the King. Subsequently, it was known as the Belgian Congo and was governed by the nominated administration of Belgium.
In 1959, a fierce black-autonomist revolt compelled majority of the European settlers to depart the Belgian Congo. The nation achieved independence from Belgium in 1960, and in 1966, the name of Léopoldville was changed to Kinshasa and the name was derived from a rural community of the 19thcentury.
