Genocide in Africa

Mainstream media are finally giving some attention to the crisis in Sudan rather than settling for coverage of who in Hollywood is dating/cheating on/having a baby with whom. The Today Show's Ann Curry is doing a series all week on the genocide taking place in Darfur. You can read her blog here, with reports from Africa and a photo journal of her trip. I'll update as the videos become available; for now, here are the first two segments from Monday and Tuesday:

Monday: Crisis in Chad, Darfur Examined

Tuesday: Women Terrorized in Darfur

Wow! Thanks for sharing these links Amy. That 15 minutes of reading/watching videos gave me a much better sense of what is happening. It is even more horrifying than I thought.
