SOUTHERN MISS FORUM, BENEFIT CONCERT
SPOTLIGHT SUDAN GENOCIDE

HATTIESBURG -- Two events sponsored by organizations at The University of Southern Mississippi will spotlight the ongoing genocide crisis in the African nation of Sudan.

A forum to examine the issue will be held Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. in Stout Hall A. Featured speakers include Douglas Chambers, Elizabeth Drummond, Bob Press, Michael Ide and Gene Goaux. The forum, sponsored by the Southern Miss Sudan Steering Committee, includes a short audiovisual presentation.

In addition, a benefit concert for refugees in Sudan will be held Saturday, Nov. 20, at 8:30 p.m. at the Thirsty Hippo, 211 S. Main Street in Hattiesburg. Three bands will perform, including Percussion Concussion, Thomas Jackson, and An End to October. Admission to the concert is $5, with proceeds to benefit the charity work of Doctors Without Borders in providing health care for refugees in Darfur, Sudan.

This event is sponsored by Southern Miss Amnesty International and the Sudan Steering Committee.
