Sudan: Fueling the Genocide

Filed under: Africa,Sudan — carolynthewriter @ 10:37 pm

For those within driving distance to Philadelphia, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia is holding a panel tomorrow (Wednesday, March 12) night at 5:45 p.m., called “Sudan: Fueling the Genocide.” Panelists are Lauren Landis, a senior representative to Sudan in the U.S. State Department, Daoud Ibrahim Hari, a Darfuri refugee who is the author of the recently published book, the Translator, Dave Peterson, senior director of the Africa program at the National Endowment for Democracy, and Megan McKenna, a writer and advocate working with international nongovernmental organizations. Yours truly is the moderator.  Call the council at 215-561-4700 for more information. On the evening of March 17, there is a program at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia on “War’s Youngest Victims.” I’ll give details for that program later. Both are part of the One Book, One Philadelphia project, which this year features Dave Eggars, What is the What. It’s a great fictionalized account of the real-life story of one of Sudan’s Lost boys. I enthusiastically recommend it.
