NCPOA_midyear_meeting_June_15_2013

NCPOA once again held its mid-year meeting at the UNC Global Education Center at UNC Chapel Bill on June 15, 2013. After lunch we were treated to a series of presentations including

  • Medical Team Trip Report - Carlos Vargas
  • A talk on the Black diaspora in Bolivia by Ms. Lolita Gutierrez Brockington, author of 'Blacks, Indians, and Spaniards in the Eastern Andes:Reclaiming the Forgotten in Colonial Mizque, 1550-1782'
  • Farmer-to-Famer Trip Report - Steve Gibson

We then as a group brainstormed for the future of NCPOA with many good ideas pouring forth. All in all, a very productive meeting and gathering of Partners friends old and new.
