Last week I accompanied my hero, mentor and friend Ambassador Andrew Young, who is also the global spokesman for Operation HOPE, to a very special program at the Tribeca Film Festival in honor of beautiful Rwanda!
Bravo to our friends at Tribeca for doing this - the evening featured remarks by former President Bill Clinton, President Paul Kagame of Rwanda, Ambassador Andrew Young, inspiring Rwandan young film makers and a host of others.
The evening also featured a beautiful presentation by the Rwandan dancers, who later traveled to Atlanta to perform for Ambassador Andrew Young's 75th birthday. The also screened an 18 minute short of and for Rwanda Rising, which i played a small part in helping to bring together.
A very special evening, for a very special country. As I keep saying, Rwanda is the hope for the African continent. Stay tuned....
