Summary
In 1904, Ota Benga, a young Congolese 'pygmy'-- a person of petite stature-- arrived from central Africa and was featured in an anthropology exhibit at the St. Louis World's Fair. Two years later, the New York Zoological Gardens displayed him in its Monkey House, caging the slight, 103-pound, 4-foot 11-inch tall man with an orangutan. Pamela Newkirk explores the circumstances of Ota Benga's captivity, the international controversy it inspired, and his efforts to adjust to American life
