*Two errors in the article: (1) “17th century Africa” not “1700s,” and (2) Professor Heywood cites “Queen Elizabeth I” not “Queen Victoria”

Corrections: “Master strategist, warrior and negotiator in 17th century Africa. And a woman. Hear more about Queen Njinga of Angola on Thursday.”

“But Queen Elizabeth I did not lead an army”
