THE POLITICAL SOCIO-ECONOMICS OF POVERTY IN THE 21ST CENTURY: WHAT AMERICA CAN LEARN FROM AFRICA
The oppressive past in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Rwanda will be discussed in light of the rise of their political stability and economic growth as well as across the African continent, given a commitment to addressing poverty by African Heads of State through the structures of the African Union Commission, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), regional economic communities and country specific initiatives. He will also discuss African holistic and integrated approaches leading to success – a growing black middle class, vibrant economies and people-centered participation in local political, socio-economic structures.

Today I was mentally stimulated, socially enhanced and historically enlightened by Jose Bright. His lecture on politics and the socio-economics of poverty humbled and motivated me in my mission to be a leader and change agent for my community. Sir Bright has morphed my thoughts about Africa and given me a message about socio-economics that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
After experiencing his lecture, I now wish I would have brought more people with me to experience it. Morehouse College is monumental to my personal growth and development as a leader. Thank you Sir Bright!
