Before Elie Wiesel Speaks At the U.N. …
George Clooney Makes An Appeal for Darfur, Sudan:
Even more, click here for a three-part mini-series documentary Clooney put together to inform those of us not in the know. Access an interview he did on CNN as well; they call it “Cashing in his celebrity credit card” — bully for him & for the folks he helps, however indirectly and little.
Close to half a million murdered to date … sound like any other period of history?
Thanks to Jilliann for pointing Clooney’s use of his clout for a good cause out.
In other news, the Boully, Belz, and Howe readings are available here now. Fun night – thanks to audience and readers alike!
