Picha Mtaani: Photo Exhibit on Community Dialogue and Reconciliation in Kenya Post-2008//contacts sought in USA
Over the past few years, Boniface Mwangi, an award-winning photojournalist-turned-activist, has sought to foster community dialogue and reconciliation from the 2007-2008 post-election violence. He has traveled with his photography exhibit in communities throughout Kenya. Now, he is coming to the United States to engage diaspora communities in this effort and conversation. Here are a few resources to explain further:

We are seeking contacts in different cities with strong Kenyan diaspora communities, and we would be delighted if you would be interested in helping with this project: whether to host the exhibit, offer suggestions, connect with the community that supported the Hakimani Center (Jesuit and beyond), or help contact Kenyan diaspora in the US. Please contact me at sasha.kinney (at) gmail.com or Boniface Mwangi directly at boniface (at) pichamtaani.org.
