Ideas for the reunion:As you prabboly know, Haile Gerima, who taught Amharic to the Ethiopia Ten group at Camp Wekeela in Maine the summer of 1968, is a professor of Film at Howard University and lives in the D.C. area (according to Wikipedia). I'd love to see him at the reunion. Maybe he'd show some of his films? He has never responded to my emails, so I don't know if he'd be amenable, but could someone in the D.C. area try to recruit him for the reunion?Obvious suggestion for the reunion: Some way for people to display or otherwise share their photos, slide shows, etc. It would be totally great of there were some kind of technology to make it easy for individuals to make a fast copy of a photo if one attendee has a photo that another attendee would love to have.Performances by Ethiopian musicians would be great.Wouldn't it be great to have a tour of the White House as a group?
