Africa Center Visits Gettysburg

Posted in Uncategorized by Vince Crawley on November 10, 2013

I put together this video following our visit to the Gettysburg National Battlefield Memorial on Oct. 31, 2013.

The Africa Center for Strategic Studies (ACSS) invited 60 next-generation leaders from 40 nations in Africa for a visit to Gettysburg National Military Park in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, October 31, 2013. While sharing the history of America’s own bloody and prolonged civil war, the visit also allowed discussion of strategic leadership as well as post-conflict reconciliation. In the video, the Africa Center’s Prof. Thomas Dempsey explains why the 150-year-old battle and its aftermath are relevant to African leaders today. The event was part of the Africa Center’s three-week Next Generation of Security Sector Leaders program.

Our writer Paul Nantulya also interviewed several to participants to put together an interesting story, ‘The Making of a Nation’ – African Security Sector Leaders Visit Gettysburg
