President Bush sets off early next week on his first official trip to Africa. His itinerary calls for visits to some of the continent's biggest success stories: Senegal, South Africa, Botswana, Uganda and Nigeria. He will also encounter some of that continent's most pressing burdens, including AIDS, lawlessness and the struggle for democracy. Hear NPR's Jason Beaubien.
