Notes from Poet Neal Hall, MD, in Hyderabad, India

Hello Friends:

Yesterday, I had the honor of being invited to speak before 46 members (40 men, 6 women; 30 of whom represent the governing body) of the African Student Association of Hyderabad, India.

The talk ( 20 minutes) and Q&A went on for four hours straight. 

The 46 individuals represented 16 African countries to include: Botswana, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Republic of The Congo, Uganda, Yemen.

The Association is 5,000 members strong representing numerous African Countries with students attending universities in the greater Hyderabad area.  The organization was created, in large part, to establish a united front and mutual support against  racism and discrimination African students are experiencing at the hands of Indians during their studies in India.
It was absolutely an amazing experience for all involved.
