Delicious Peace: Coffee, Music and Jewish, Muslim and Christian Harmony in Uganda

Tufts University Jewish Chaplain and Executive Director of Tufts Hillel for 34 years, Rabbi Jeffrey Summit and photojournalist Richard Sobol will present a multimedia talk about their involvement with Delicious Peace. It is a story of coffee, music and world peace.The coffee is grown by more than 1000 Christian, Muslim and Jews who live in a rural region of Uganda and are members of a fair trade cooperative called "Peace Kawomera" - kawomera means in "delicious" in Luganda. The farmers make music together, music that Summit found so inspirational that he had to share it with the world.
This talk is sponsored by the Office for Religious Life, Catholic Community at Stanford, Episcopal Lutheran Campus Ministry, Hillel at Stanford, Islamic Student Society at Stanford and the Peace+Justice Studies Initiative.
