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  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  this evening in conjunction with the Embrey Human Rights Program  at Southern Methodist University.
