BlackElectorate.com launches its multi-part investigative series on the crisis in Darfur, Sudan. Through an in-depth series of interviews with experts, specialists, opinion leaders, religious leaders, activists, and government officials; BlackElectorate.com hopes to help its readers arrive at the truth of the matter in Darfur, and to identify the basis for a lasting peace in the region and Sudan. The series, 'Asking The Right Questions About Darfur, Sudan', begins with an exclusive interview with Professor Sean OÂFahey of Northwestern University and the University of Bergen (Norway). Professor OÂFahey is a specialist in Islamic Sudan and Eastern Africa and has authored several books specifically on Dar Fur.
BlackElectorate.com Publisher Cedric Muhammad says of the motivation and format of the special series, ÂWe are launching this series because I believe that many within the mainstream media and some leaders have done all of us a disservice in not properly explaining the current crisis in Sudan and its roots. Some have allowed ideological, partisan and special interests to influence and corrupt their research process, premises, arguments and conclusions regarding Darfur in particular, and Sudan in general. The result has been the manipulation and increase of the lack of knowledge among people, particularly Blacks living in America and the people of Africa, as it relates to their understanding of one another.
"So we decided that BlackElectorate.com should look for a fuller explanation, locating individuals of various perspectives, stations, and fields of expertise, in search of the truth Â facts, proper interpretations of the facts, and solutions to the complex problems of this region and nation. I honestly believe that if Darfur and Sudan can be placed on the road to peace and prosperity the same can be done for all of Africa. But no problem as serious and complicated as this can be solved without the knowledge of the truth. And the truth can best be investigated and obtained by properly asking the right people the right questions at the right timeÂ.
