President’s Obama’s Forum with Young African Leaders August 3-5, 2010

“This is a new moment of great promise. Only this time, we’ve learned that it will not be giants like Nkrumah and Kenyatta who will determine Africa’s future… It will be the young people brimming with talent and energy and hope who can claim the future that so many in previous generations never realized.”
– President Barack Obama

Yesterday, President Obama met with 120 young African leaders, who gathered in Washington, D.C. for three-day forum. I like the focus the President in putting on young people and people who are not in government. The old ways of dealing with the old heads is hopefully over. Click on the link below to learn more about this forum, who some of these leaders are and what their plans are for their own countries. Remember, Africa is a continent.
