Neither a political rally nor a religious event, this gathering celebrated the culture of the Congo with joyful music and art. We heard a socio-politico-economic presentation from Dr. Georges Nzongola Ntalanja about the current state of things in the Congo (remember his excellent presentation at our All Things Congo event?). Then a panel of experts fielded a wide range of questions. They offered concrete advice on how we might make a difference. We also made some terrific connections for future work together (including meeting Ms.Mbelu Walton of the microloan project accesxy) and Dr. Philip Mwalali of the Africa Economic Foundation.
