Events for those interested in Africa

Time to look again

Professor George Ayittey of American University in DC is speaking April 2, 2005 at the Foundation for Economic Education on the topic, "Betrayal: Why Socialism Failed in Africa". I read his book "Africa Betrayed" while living in Senegal and his stories on government power run amuck seemed to make alot of sense, not just for Africa but for all societies.

Ayittey is also being featured in a BOOK FORUM at the Cato Institute in DC on May 4, 2005, in honor of his new book, "Africa Unchained: The Blueprint for Africa's Future".
