Pictures from "Eritrea:The Oldest New Nation" lecture at Santa Rosa Junior College on Feb. 8th, 2010.

At the invitation of Santa Rosa Junior College Museum, I gave a lecture entitled "Eritrea: The Oldest New Nation". The title is from my on-going documentary on Eritrea. The lecture started at 12:30 and lasted an hour. The lecture included a 12 minutes film and power point presentation. It was standing room only and after the door of the auditorium was closed, people were turned away. The lecture started with a moment of silence. There were two sign language translators present. Briefly, I talked about how Eritrea is a new country and continue to talk about how Eritrea is an old country, hence the title of the lecture.

Here are some pictures from the event.

Exhibit Opening Reception at Santa Rosa Junior College Museum

Santa Rosa Junior College Museum's Exhibit opening reception was held on February 4th 2010.
The exhibit was a kick-off for various Eritrea-related exhibit and lecture series. The exhibit will run from February 4th 2010 through May 9th 2010.

The event was well attended, organized and received. Kudos to all the people who made the event a success. Of course, no Eritrea-related event would be successful without the full participation of Eritrean women.

Here are some pictures that I took at the event.
