The situation in Darfur grows more dire with each passing day.
Since the mainstream media doesn't really satisfy my need for information regarding the horrible genocide taking place in this country I turned to the internet. I have been listening to a podcast called Voices on Genocide Prevention. The audio series is presented by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and is hosted by Committee on Conscience Staff Director, Jerry Fowler.
The podcast recently featured New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. Kristof talked about Darfur and is apparently giving a trip away with him to Africa. Kristof is looking for a student to go to somewhere in Africa with him and blog about the experience on the New York Times website. Kristof said that he is not looking for someone with a lot of traveling experience but someone who is interested in a once in a lifetime experience uncovering the truth in a part of the world that the media otherwise ignores.
