Center for Global Development Hosts First Book Event

The first official event on my "Redemption Road Trip" was a Reading & Discussion hosted by the Center for Global Development as part of its initiative to support Liberia's reconstruction and development. CGD is an independent, not-for-profit think tank in Washington DC that works to reduce global poverty and inequality by encouraging policy change in the US and other rich nations. After the reading, much of our discussion revolved around prospects for Liberia's future and the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
