The Struggle for Peace

May 23, 2012

Hour 2:           How powerful can the struggle for peace really be? We’ll spend this hour with Nobel Peace Prize recipient Leymah Gbowee [1] who helped lead the Liberian Mass Action for Peace, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women who sat in public protest, confronting Charles Taylor – Liberia’s ruthless president and rebel warlords to achieve peace. Gbowee will address the World Affairs Council of Dallas Fort Worth [2] this evening in conjunction with the Embrey Human Rights Program [3] at Southern Methodist University.
