Featured Speakers:
Maurice Carney, co-founder & Executive Director of the Friends of the Congo, has worked with Congolese for over fifteen years in their struggle for peace, justice and human dignity.

Akbar Muhammad, International Representative of the Nation of Islam, Washington DC radio host, just returned from tour of several countries in West Africa
