Darfur: Civil War or Genocide

Watha T. Daniel Lecture Series
Presented by Librarian Paul Sweeney

Darfur has become a byword for a government’s repression of minority ethnic groups within its own borders. The suffering of the peasants of Sudan has covered the newspapers and news-sites with pictures difficult to view. The Question is what to do about this crisis how to end the suffering? The situation has been called the first genocide of the 21st century.

In a short and well illustrated power point presentation, the librarian is going to explore this humanitarian crisis that has shocked the world.
